GrantFinder – Creative UK Launches Business Builder Fund For Screen-Based Storytellers
8th August 2023
Administered by Creative UK, the Creative Enterprise Business Builder Fund sits under Creative Enterprise, a BFI-funded project to help screen-based businesses move away from working project-to-project and develop more sustainable businesses. This is achieved through mentoring and consulting, investment readiness courses, and the Creative Enterprise Business Builder Fund.
Through the Business Builder Fund, Creative UK is able to offer grants to registered SMEs working in ‘moving image’ for storytelling. The fund aims to support businesses to maximise their ability and create opportunities for business growth.
Creative UK can offer maximum grants of £2,500. The grants can be used to subsidise the cost of working with an expert to support companies’ specific goals, including business planning and strategy as well as offering other specialist expertise, knowledge or contacts. Examples include marketing strategy, monetisation of IP and international operation.
Screen-based storytelling businesses based in England may apply. ‘Screen-based’ comprises those working in film, TV, animation, games and immersive industries. The business should be a limited company registered on Companies House, with a relevant track record in the screen industry.
Applications open on 13 September 2023 and will remain open until March 2024 or until the fund is depleted, whichever occurs sooner.
