The Creative Enterprise New Ideas Fund is a programme designed to help screen-based businesses become more sustainable.
Through the Fund, Creative England is able to offer small seed funding to sole traders, start-ups and small firms for their creative business ideas. The funding is for screen-based storytelling businesses in the English regions for ideas relating to screen-based industries ie. film, television, animation, games, immersive media or tech that supports these industries.
Investments of between £500 and £15,000 are available for emerging and new screen-based storytelling business proposals, including new business ideas, business proposals and business costs. Newer companies and proposals looking for lower amounts are likely to receive grants, whilst higher-value proposals and more established companies are likely to be offered loans.
