Congratulations to ICMP Music Business and Entrepreneurship alumni Paolo Tuveri and Finn Doherty on being named as the latest recipients of the Ace Accelerator@Bureau.

The pair are behind an as yet unnamed new agency uniting business owners with creatives. 

Paolo and Finn's project was launched during their time studying at ICMP and sees them working with a network of creatives providing a range of services including photography, videography, graphic design, web development and more.  

They follow in the footsteps of previous recipients and alumni Luana Pires (pictured below handing over the keys to Paolo and Finn) and Sean Arkless in winning the backing. 


The initiative gives ICMP creatives the opportunity to base their business out of Bureau in London's Design District

It provides them with a platform so they can grow their enterprise, make meaningful connections and take their ideas to the next stage. It also opens them up to potential networking and collaborative opportunities with other businesses working within the space as well as advice from Ace and Design District experts. 


Paolo said: "A huge thank you to Ace for his amazing support! It's something that kind of flowed naturally. Finn and I started working together back in our first year of uni, and we've just been following our instincts, and now here we are."

The Design District seemed like this awesome chance to build connections and turn our vision into reality, which is exactly what we've always aimed for - taking on projects at a top-notch level."


Finn said: "I think it was inevitable that we were going to apply for this. Basing our operations in the Design District gives us this opportunity to build our network across multiple sectors and creative industries, which is really exciting."

I just love the idea of building this network of young creatives that we like and think are cool, and then essentially providing them with work."

"It offers a unique opportunity to businesses, organisations, entrepreneurs, artists, and anyone who might not otherwise have the opportunity to work with really talented young people."


Ace said: "I'm so excited to see the dedication and impressive effort that Paolo and Finn have put into their business model to be incubated in the Design District."

I have no doubt that their venture will fit perfectly into the networking and collaboration element that the Bureau has to offer. I wish them the best in this new chapter and look forward to being part of their journey through mentorship."

The Design District is a collection of 16 buildings designed by eight architects, set in the heart of Greenwich Peninsula.

From summer 2021, this area has offered a permanent and purpose-designed work space for the creative industries.  

Congratulations again to Paolo and Finn. Look out for more updates on their project and follow them on Instagram here and here
