Creative England Business Loans

Creative England is offering interest free business loans of up to £150,000 to support creative and digital businesses across the English regions.

The Creative England Business Loans are for small to medium-sized companies outside of London looking to develop new products, including software, applications and content for Cross Platform TV development; Healthcare; Government Services; Games and Interactive Entertainment; Business To Business; E-Learning and Mobile applications.

Creative England is offering interest free loans of between £60,000 and £150,000 per application, which will be matched 50/50 with the company sharing the development costs.  Proposals such as a mobile healthcare application, the development of a new game for tablet or mobile, or e-government content linked to a new service delivery model, may all be eligible.

The Floow, an independent UK digital company based in Sheffield poised to transform the motor insurance industry with their smart phone technology, are a past recipient of a Creative England Business Loan. The loan enabled them to create eight new jobs and double their turnover to £500,000, and they forecast a £2million turnover for the next financial year. Over the next four years they expect to create 70 new jobs in Sheffield and become a global telematics exporter.

The Creative England Business Loans are made possible via funding from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund.  View more details on the guidelines and how to apply here.
