WeWork to give over £1 million to budding UK entrepreneurs
Co-working and office space provider WeWork is offering £1.2 million to aspiring entrepreneurs in the UK.
The grant will be given to winners of the Creator Awards - WeWork’s new global initiative to provide financial support to entrepreneurs, small businesses, and growing companies.
The awards will consist of three categories: the Incubate Award for entrepreneurs that require funding to kick-start their ideas and market their business, the Launch Award for businesses or non-profits that have launched their business but wish to progress, and the Scale Award for businesses or non-profits that have already achieved some success but wish to launch a new element of their business.
The company will also hold a number of free events in London, Manchester, Leeds, Dublin, and Cambridge to inspire budding entrepreneurs.
WeWork Managing Director, Europe and Israel Eugen Miropolski said: “The Creator Awards are a fantastic opportunity for aspiring business men and women to really shout about their ideas, entrepreneurship and their passion.
“At WeWork we love to support these kinds of creatives and we want to do all we can to support them on their journey to business success.”
WeWork is now accepting entries for the awards, which are set to be held in September.
