Could you and your new (or about to be) creative business benefit from some professional business mentoring? FuelRCA offers an exciting and completely free mentoring programme for RCA alumni, in partnership with the global business consultancy firm PwC.
LATEST - applications for PwC Mentoring are currently CLOSED.
Royal College of Art graduates selected for the RCA-PwC Mentoring Programme will benefit from 18 months of regular 1:1 mentoring and team masterclasses. The mentors are all professionals at PwC who provide time and considerable experience to help RCA graduates grow creative ideas into successful businesses or social enterprises.
Creative people often lack experience and knowledge of the business world. That's why this programme has been designed by InnovationRCA, FuelRCA and PwC to assist 6-10 specially selected RCA graduates (or teams of graduates) in the next stage of their careers. The programme will provide advice on how to succeed as an entrepreneur. During regular meetings your PwC mentor will be able to help you get to grips with common business issues like finance, business planning, contracts, client relationships, pricing, marketing and management.
