2022 LinkedIn Creator Accelerator Programme in the UK

Deadline: June 21, 2022.

LinkedIn is partnering with creators in the UK who are eager to start conversations about the world of work and who want to build a community in the process. 

The LinkedIn Creator Accelerator Programme is a new initiative designed to invest in creators in the UK. Creators are at the heart of high-quality, meaningful conversations on LinkedIn. They want to give creators the coaching, the tools, and the platform to build community, spark productive conversations, and connect to meaningful opportunities.

The Creator Accelerator Programme in the UK is a 6-week incubator style programme where participants can bring new concepts and visions to life, grow their audience, and engage with the LinkedIn community. Accepted programme participants will receive support from our Community Management team, access to LinkedIn tools, and a financial payment to start conversations, build engaged communities, and connect to meaningful opportunities.


  1. While they’re calling all creators, there are a few rules. Applicants must be 18 and over.
  2. LinkedIn members, and residents of the United Kingdom. Members of the LinkedIn Influencer programme, LinkedIn employees and contractors, and employees and contractors of LinkedIn’s parent company, Microsoft, are not eligible to apply for the programme.
  3. If the eligibility requirements are met, LinkedIn Learning instructors are able to apply for the LinkedIn Creator Accelerator Programme in the United Kingdom.
  4. They are accepting up to 200 creators to the LinkedIn Creator Accelerator Programme in the United Kingdom.


They are asking applicants to submit a creative concept to bring to life during the 6-week programme. Creators will be holistically evaluated on four key areas: 

  • Creativity: Does the creator have an original and compelling vision for how to start conversations on LinkedIn and build community? Do they demonstrate an ability to leverage video and other media in an engaging, helpful, quality way?
  • Passion: Does the creator focus on something helpful within the world of work? Will they spark meaningful conversations?
  • Commitment: Does the creator have a thoughtful and specific plan for bringing their content to life?
  • Impact: Does the creator’s focus align with LinkedIn’s vision and mission of creating economic opportunity for the global workforce? Will content resonate and engage their target audience? Have they demonstrated an ability to build community on or off LinkedIn?


Participants in the LinkedIn Creator Accelerator Programme will receive coaching, recognition and resources. Specifics include: 

  • A financial payment of $4,000 USD for each participant to help bring their idea to life
  • Access to weekly programming 
  • Coaching from expert creators and Creator Managers
  • Opportunities to be featured across LinkedIn brand, marketing, and editorial channels
  • Creator-to-creator networking
  • Program swag
