Creative England is dedicated to the growth of the creative industries.
We invest in talented people and their creative ideas, nurturing our richly diverse games, TV, film and digital media industries. From direct investment and soft loans to business mentoring; we champion the best ideas of talented people and their businesses.
As a not-for-profit organisation we mobilise public and private resources to garner as much support and investment for the creative industries as possible. We work with a wide range of partners and investors from commercial brands and companies such as Google, Facebook and KPMG to local authorities, cultural bodies and universities, national government, and the European Commission.
Because England's creative businesses are already a big success.
We don't just invest money; we provide a ‘money plus' service. We are building strong, long-term relationships with industry and our partners. We provide practical support for film and TV production; organise networking and events; provide mentoring, information and business advice. We connect and combine local knowledge with national and international reach.
