Creative Scale Up Programme launched to support Creative Businesses

The Creative Scale Up Programme is a £1.3 million 2 year programme funded by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport. It aims to help Creative Businesses in the West Midlands with targeted support including Access to Finance, Marketing and Branding, Value and Pricing, Intellectual Property and Contract Law and Sales, Pitching and Presenting support. This will be delivered through a series of workshops, seminars and peer to peer mentoring sessions.

Those businesses with an interest in receiving investment will also be introduced to a number of different investors and funding streams through ‘Scale Up’ Showcase Events which will happen biannually.

We are looking to work with any creative business in the region with ambitions to grow and ‘scale up’ including screen, gaming, VR, AI, performing arts, marketing and events, PR and design businesses.

A full schedule of the workshops taking place can be found here. If you believe any of these workshops would be of benefit to you or your Creative Business please fill in the Expression of Interest Form using the web link below.
