Screen businesses often find themselves working project to project, struggling to attract investment and establish a business model that can last. Creative Enterprise: Evolve is a unique opportunity for creative companies working in storytelling to understand the opportunities and processes for raising finance.

Designed by investors with a wealth of experience investing in thriving screen businesses, Evolve has been created for screen businesses with real ambition who are seeking investment to grow and succeed.

The programme will take on 20 companies from across the English regions and prepare their company for growth through a series of one-to-one sessions, investor introductions, pitching platforms and combined peer-to-peer group workshops, intended to challenge and prepare companies for further investment and growth.

Successful applicants will receive an in-depth review of their business at the start of the programme to better understand their performance and market position. Over the six-month programme each participant will receive up to five tailored private sessions with Creative England advisors, as well as access to pitching sessions and group workshops.

Every business, team and product are different; this programme works collaboratively with you to select the mentors, advisors and industry experts best suited to help your business evolve.

Evolve is run in partnership with the UK Business Angels Association and funded by the BFI.
