D&AD Accelerator Program

At the end of last year, the team of Trip in the Dark passed an accelerator course by D&AD, Britain-based association of designers and art director.
During 2 months we studied the art of entrepreneurship, pitching and strategic planning, accompanied by fellow startupers and experts from business and creative industries. We then share the knowledge with the project owner Vladimir Vaskevich, a visually impaired guide and entrepreneur.
Our victory in Future Impact festival category gave us this chance to participate in the accelerator. The project works to the benefit of inclusiveness promotion in Russia.

Last year’s zoom-session has been the first step of our cooperation at the startup school. There are 6 months of virtual calls with mentors assigned to the project. This symbiosis of creative minds of the agency and ad industry leaders will help to find the ways to scale the work.
