Young entrepreneurs

At the London Book Fair the other week, Lost In CCI bumped into two alumni of the programme, Claire de Braekeleer (2003-4) and Pablo Rossello (2004-5). Since graduation both Claire and Pablo have been working for the British Council in the Creative Economy unit (previously the Creative Industries unit… hmm, interesting change of name). They were at the Book Fair to run the final stages of the International Young Publisher of the Year awards, a initiative launched four years ago to draw attention to some of the world’s most innovative and energetic young publishers, and to bring them to London to pitch their books at the Fair. This year the winner was S.Anand from India. The Creative Economy unit has launched three further awards for young entrepreneurs in design, film and music.
