It's been a great day for us here at the Asilia offices. Not only have we been basking in the glorious midweek sun, but we also just found out that we have been nominated for a chance to compete in the UK Competition for the Creative Business Cup, an initiative of the British Council. This is global competition for entrepreneurs and startups in the creative industries including (but not limited to) Design, Architecture, Advertising, Film & Video, Radio & TV etc. Some of the previous winners include Danish based travel guide I Like Locals (winner, 2011) which gives the traveller the opportunity to meet locals and discover their favourite spots, and We Want Cinema (winner, 2012) a Dutch company which gives movie-goers the autonomy to decide what is shown at their local movie theatre.
This year Asilia has been nominated in the Design category and are proud to sit alongside some of the UK's best creative businesses. The top prize is a fully financed acceleration programme worth $50,000, providing the winner with support from mentors and an international network of advisors.
Before reaching the international stage, Asilia needs to compete in the UK competition which will this year be hosted by Creative England.The Global competition will be taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark, on November 18-20, 2013. We'd love a little Danish holiday and we'd love for you to vote for us. It only take a few minutes.
