Creative industry finance offers business development support and access to finance for creative industry enterprises.
The initial one-year pilot of the scheme is taking place in London and the Yorkshire and Humber regions, with a total investment of £300,000 across the two regions.
The programme provides practical advice and support for creative entrepreneurs wishing to develop and grow their business as a viable commercial enterprise.
In addition to the business support package, a limited number of business development loans of £5,000 to 25,000 are available for successful applicants, repayable over a maximum of three years.
Whether you are an artist, writer, performer, designer, producer, promoter, publisher or innovator, if creative content is at the heart of your business this programme may be able to help.
