Innovate UK has launched Creative Catalyst – a major new investment programme to support business innovation in the creative industries.
Applications are now open for the first phase of the Creative Catalyst programme with a call for grants up to £50k for UK registered micro and small business in the creative industries. We think it’s a great opportunity for those whose projects and business fit the criteria and encourage you to watch the detailed briefing event video if you are considering applying.
The CI Team will be happy to talk through applications and help, or refer you to folk at Innovate UK who can help with the process, but please contact us as early as possible. The call is live now and closes on 15 February 2023.
These grants are also supported with a package of business support. There will be further calls coming for packages of Non-Financial Support for growing businesses, and later for an Investor accelerator to support companies towards investment. Innovate also have a parallel Scaleup programme live at the moment for those of you at that later stage of developing your company.
