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.
