MDS Studios is a Business Incubator Programme run by the Media Design School. Each year we accept 2-3 teams of final year students from across the School into the summer Programme to incorporate their own startup studio or business, and develop a creative technology project for commercial release.
You and your team must meet the following eligibility requirements to register for the programme:
All applicants must be enrolled as full-time students at Media Design School.
All third-year students are eligible to apply to the programme.
Any other students who demonstrate potential for commercial success will be invited to apply at the discretion of Media Design School.
Expression of Interest phase - opens early October.
Interested teams will be required to prepare a Business Plan (template provided) and submit this by late October.
Successful applicants will be notified in November if they have been selected to join the Programme.
The MDS Studios Programme will formally begin on early December.
The Programme concludes by end of March, however continued support and access to GridAKL can be negotiated.
