Dreamville Ventures, and Apple, Inc. are partnering up for Marcus Graham Project, iCR8’s Bootcamp. Together, they will sponsor 12 individuals giving them the ability to learn from industry mentors and bring their unique creativity to industry challenges.

“If the year has shown us anything it’s that the time is now for innovative thinkers. As the Marcus Graham Project looks to our 15-year anniversary, we want to continue to push the boundaries of diversity and more importantly, equity into spaces where the voices of color are most needed,” said Marcus Graham Project chief development officer Larry Yarrell in a release.

Participants will be assigned a specific marketing campaign with both brands and have one-on-one meetings with stakeholders from different layers of the marketing mix to understand channel efforts and see the end-to-end results of their creative ideas.

Hundreds of alumni have completed the program and work at agencies including Burrell, Publicis, and Weiden + Kennedy. Alumni have also landed positions at brands such as Foot Locker, Fossil Inc., Google, Pandora and Peloton.

Interested applicants should visit the Marcus Graham Project website for more information about the iCR8 Summer Bootcamp sponsored by Apple and Dreamville. Applications will be accepted until May 1 and the 12-week Bootcamp is slated to begin on June 15.
