Zeon Richards


Up to £40,000 over 12 months (London)

Zeon set up and runs the Renowned Group, his own artist management company working in music, spoken word, visual arts and film, with artists such as George the Poet, Funny Tummy, Jacob Banks, Knox Brown and Wretch 32.

Breakthrough support will allow Zeon to undertake the research and feasibility for a new company, uConnect – a social enterprise that will work alongside Renowned to promote social mobility and to respond to the entrepreneurialism of young people. uConnect will offer them valuable industry insight and skills through mentoring, training, networks and seminars.
