We are pleased to announce the latest projects for The Agency, our creative entrepreneurship programme that supports young people to make their ideas a reality.
We are thrilled to be working with a whole new group of young entrepreneurs who are all developing their ideas and embracing The Agency methodology.
Our independent panel had to choose just 3 out of the 9 potential projects to receive £2000 and support to make their idea happen. This year our panel included John Bentley, co-owner of FC United; Guy Mason, Trustee of Morrison’s Foundation; Alison Clark, Director of Combined Arts, Arts Council England, and Skills & Training lead for MIF/The Factory; and one of our successful Agents from last year, Aaron Omotosho, co-founder of Console Code.
