About the New Ideas Fund:
The fund is to help you with business costs, improve your offering and diversifying revenue streams. The fund can be used for: seed funding, set up costs, conducting market research, diversifying your current business into the screen based industries, testing out new and exciting elements of immersive media to help your business, employing someone new into your team, building IP, equipment etc. 

The fund can’t be used for: just creating content, e.g. short films, feature films, slate funding, talent development, production costs.

Creative England are looking for proposals that focus on developing a sustainable business rather than a specific project.
For more information on what you can and cannot apply for, and where to go for alternative funding, please read our Guidelines.

This workshop will be presented by the team managing the fund at Creative England.
