Creative Industry Finance, a programme to offer business support and finance to boost the development of cultural and creative industries, is set to launch next month.

The programme launches across England on 23 September 2014 and will offer up to 12 hours of free sector-specific business support for creative enterprises, as well as the opportunity to access loans, starting from £2,500.

Applications will be available online to creative and cultural organisations that have been trading for at least 18 months and are looking for loans to support their growth and development.

Alan Davey, chief executive of Arts Council England, said: “The roll-out of a nationwide Creative Industry Finance programme is fantastic news for the creative industries and even better news for the economy and those of us that reap the benefits of a well-funded creative sector.

“This programme gets right to the heart of creating opportunities for young and fresh talent to bring their creative ambitions to life and to find the seed-funding and much needed capital to support innovation.”

The organisation behind this programme is Creative United, an Arts Council England-backed community interest company.  Find more information on Creative industry finance.
