Start Up Loans for the creative industries

Creative England has established a new partnership with the British Business Bank, to unlock new and important investment opportunities for all subsectors of the UK's creative industries.

The new government-backed Start Up Loans for the creative industries will offer borrowing of up to £25,000 at a fixed interest rate of 6% per annum, repayable over 1-5 years. As well as providing access to early financing, the loans will also include 12 months of post-investment mentoring support for recipients.

Applicants are welcome from any subsector of the UK's creative industry; from young practitioners or experienced freelancers, to creative Start Ups less than two years old.
