Grants Fund Launch

The grant fund element of the programme is now live. The Create Growth grants fund is designed to help creative businesses explore new game-changing innovation projects as a stimulus for growth. The fund offers grants of between £10,000 and £30,000, and is open to micro and small businesses in the creative industries. Applications must offer an innovative and ambitious idea which demonstrates a new and clear growth opportunity for businesses.

Innovate UK will be hosting a briefing event about the fund on Monday 5th December. This event is for both interested businesses and anyone else who may like to join – link to register here: https://web-eur.cvent.com/event/28fffc28-d4a1-45bf-bbd6-2d7c85685d54/summary.
