Alternative culture brand OML have teamed up with Delhi based consultancy company Do One Thing to develop a programme that aims to support and strengthen the entire eco-system of India’s creative industries.
A golden opportunity, if you have your own business in the creative sector or have a great concept/business plan/early stage venture. This is an opportunity you simply cannot afford to miss.
What defines a creative entrepreneur we hear you ask… The Coalition is taking it to mean a business that is either fuelling, or is fuelled by creativity covering (but not exclusive) to the following areas: music, film design, fashion, photography, visual arts, publishing, performing arts, creative technology, event production, and arts management.
The project has three phases:
A 3 day event running from 14-16 March, comprised of talks and practical workshops to support young entrepreneurs develop their ideas into running successful creative businesses - providing an opportunity to pitch live for investment and mentorship.
An online learning platform with practical tools, industry knowledge and expert advice for early-stage creative businesses and young people in the early days of starting their businesses.
An ongoing process that will connect the best young creative businesses with relevant investors, incubators and mentors.
Year one of the Coalition aims to directly connect with over 4000 young entrepreneurs at the event in March. They aim to engage with 5000 young creative through their online platform and finally take 30 young businesses through the TC/ignite screening process to pitch to investors or incubators.

Applications close on 5 February. No excuses, get your applications in now!
