“Wired4Music supports a lot of young entrepreneurs and musicians and have supported me directly. Their support contributes to making our communities a better place. With this RBS funding, they will help bring our ideas to life.”
– Kheron, 21 year-old Wired4Music member from Southwark
We are delighted to announce that Wired4Music, our council for young musical Londoners, has been awarded a £22,980 grant from The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) as part of the Group’s Inspiring Enterprise initiative.
RBS Inspiring Youth Enterprise has been designed to encourage more young people to explore enterprise, build their skills, start up and succeed in business. RBS is making £500k of grants available every year for the next three years. The grants will go to organisations who support young people (13-30 year olds) through dedicated enterprise programmes.
Over 200 organisations submitted applications for funding to run programmes and we are on of 12 winners announced across the UK. The grants were submitted online and winners were chosen by a judging panel which included a public vote, which more than 7,000 people took part in.
This funding will allow Wired4Music to officially roll out their innovative music leadership programme to a group of talented, creative and entrepreneurial young people. The programme will provide tailored support to 20 young music-minded entrepreneurs, including mentoring from music sector experts, helping them to fulfil their potential and bring their ideas to life.
