A bespoke investment readiness programme

The Programme is tailored to the participating businesses and sub-sector specialisms (for example fashion, design, creative tech, games, film/TV, performance and music). Participants will take part in investment readiness workshops and mentoring as well as developing local and national networks across the creative industries and within the commercial investment world. Participants will also have access to pitching events and further funding rounds delivered by Innovate UK. Our target is for 75% of participating businesses to secure commercial investment by the end of the programme.
