Latimer & Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award

latimer_digital

We are thrilled to announce that, this year, we will be strengthening our relationship with Nominet Trust.

Having work extensively with Nominet Trust, Nesta & Mozilla on the Make Things Do Stuff campaign, Latimer will now work closely with the organisation, the office of HRH The Duke of York & Will.i.am to help deliver the Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award (iDEA).

Being piloted over the next six months, the award aims to improve the digital skills of over 1,000,000 million people over the next five years through their participation in a number of award stages from Discovery to Beta to Live. To sweeten the deal, those who reach the Live stage of the award have a chance of winning £20,000 to progress their digital enterprise idea.

Over the next 6 months, Latimer will be working closely with Nominet Trust, the Palace, Will.i.am and the delivery partner organisations (ranging from Princes Trust to Freeformers) to form a core editorial team that will seek to connect each and every one of the 1,000 awardees during the pilot.
