Design Council Spark

‘Turning bright ideas into products’

Design Council Spark is a programme of support and funding designed to help you successfully turn your bright idea into a commercial product.

Up to 15 finalists will be selected for the programme in March, following a selection process which includes a two day design camp for those shortlisted. The programme then runs for 16 weeks and involves the provision of specialist expertise and mentoring. Those accepted onto the programme will receive an initial sum of £15,000 to help develop their product and they will also be given the opportunity to pitch for a further share of £200,000.

Following the programme, finalists will receive lifelong membership to the Design Council Spark alumni network and access to the Design Council’s extensive community.

The deadline for applications is the 10th of January 2017 – for more information and to submit an application visit their website here.
