FUTURE ACADEMY RESIDENCY
A programme designed to inspire and empower courageous inventors to define the future for AKQA and our clients.
Every quarter, we invite current students and recent graduates to apply for our three-month in-house residency. Based at our London office, Future Academy provides visionary thinkers and makers with everything they need to build ventures that positively impact society.
Structured as a collaborative, hands-on course, residents work on client briefs and freeform projects that showcase their creative, technical and entrepreneurial talent. Alongside this, they are mentored by AKQA thought leaders and surrounded by the influential authors, athletes, artists and entrepreneurs within our network. We challenge teams to rapidly develop their thinking from sketchpad to prototype – those who shine brightest will be offered a permanent opportunity within our team.
Fearless: unwavering in your approach to developing ideas that catalyse positive change.
Inventive: constantly testing the power of your imagination through relentless experimentation.
Driven: fuelled by curiosity and capable of identifying opportunities within real-world problems.
Versatile: adaptable to any situation and resolute in your pursuit of the extraordinary.
