The Literary Platform has been selected for the Guardian Culture Professionals Network and the Hospital Club’s h.Club100 list for 2013. “Innovators, Visionaries, Pioneers” – The Hospital Club’s h.Club100 in association with Guardian Culture Professionals Network is a search for the most influential, innovative and interesting people in the creative and media industries.
The Literary Platform was one of ten winning companies selected by the British Council for the h.Club100 Creative Entrepreneur category. The British Council defines this list as ‘up and coming entrepreneurs who show talent, edginess and entrepreneurial spirit’. The selection is a mark of recognition for our work ‘to bridge the gap between the digital and publishing industries‘, on our websites and via our client work and research projects at TLP Collective.
Beatrice Pembroke, Director, Creative Economy, British Council, said: “A key part of our work is spotting emerging new trends in the creative industry to share with our network around the world. We think all the winners in the category demonstrate the experimentation and quality of creative innovation in the UK.”
Patrick McKenna, CEO Ingenious, said: “It was a pleasure meeting the creative entrepreneurs and I was really impressed with the vision and ambition of the businesses they are leading.”
Sue Walter, CEO The Hospital Club said, “We are delighted to be working with the British Council on the Creative Entrepreneurs category of the h.Club100, our list to identify the most innovative people working in the Creative industries in 2013.”
A total of 300 made it to the shortlist for this year’s h.100 list and the final 100 were announced at The Hospital Club in London on 18th November.
