Have you got a creative business idea you want to bring to life?

Do you think it might be too innovative or forward-thinking to get off the ground? Well, we have good news to share as the WeWork Creator Awards London want you!

Rewarding entrepreneurs, artists, start-ups, and non-profits who are thinking in new ways and creating real change, the WeWork Creator Awards is now open for entries with $360,000 funding up for grabs.

Established by co-working and office space provider WeWork since May 2017, the Creator Awards is a major global initiative to recognise the creators of the world – across all industries and all stages of growth.

If you’re an entrepreneur with a fresh idea, you can enter The Business Ventures Award which offers a prize amount ranging from $130,000 up to $360,000.

There is also The Nonprofit Award for charitable organisations ($18,000 to $130,000), and The Performing Arts Award for entertainers and groups ($18,000 to $72,000).

Entering gives you the chance to change everything; WeWork has given away more than​ $18m in Creator Awards funding to 187 winners, with more than 670 jobs created by businesses that have won.

By applying, you’ll also receive a free one-year membership for WeWork.

If your entry is successful and you’re selected as a finalist, you will pitch live on stage at the London event on October 25 in front of a panel of judges.

The winner of the Creator Awards London will be eligible to pitch for a second time for additional funding at the Creator Awards Global Finals, taking place in early 2019 in New York.

Entries for the Creator Awards close on September 10.
