Creative England has launched a new Business Investment Fund of £1 million for creative and digital businesses in England.
Supported by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund, the £1 million is available in the form of interest free loans of between £60,000 and £100,000. It is open to SMEs who are looking to develop new software, applications and content for the following expanding markets:
- Cross Platform TV development
- feature film production
- Government Services
- Games, Interactive Entertainment and Mobile Content
- Business To Business
- Mobile applications
Creative England’s Director of Business Development, Jim Farmery, said:
“Creative businesses bring energy, enterprise & innovation to cities and regions across England. Our funds support companies with innovative ideas for content development that have commercial potential but are struggling to get off the ground.”
Creative England’s first business investment fund is helping SMEs in a variety of sectors all across the UK. In Sheffield, The Floow, are creating a smart phone application to capture and analyse location information and driver performance data for third party organisations for use by third parties, primarily insurance companies and car manufacturers.
