Creative England has confirmed the launch of two of its ‘Creative Enterprise’ business support offers.
The New Ideas Fund and Business Planning Support grants are now open to creative screen businesses operating in the English regions (outside of London), providing expertise and training to futureproof the next generation of moving image companies.
Following an initial phase in 2019, the New Ideas Fund has returned this year to provide small grants for creative entrepreneurs and companies working in moving image for storytelling. The scheme now offers increased grants of between £1,000 and £25,000 to support the development of new and innovative ideas that have the potential to impact an entrepreneurial journey and grow a business.
Through the Business Planning Support programme, Creative England will pay up to £5,000 to subsidise the cost of working with an expert to support companies with their business planning and strategy.
For both schemes, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, with no set deadlines.
How To Apply
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and considered at a regular panel meeting held at least once a month.
Further advice and information on applications may be sought directly from Creative England.
