Strategic Programmes Creative Industries Development

Advantage Creative works with LEPs, Local Authorities, Universities, Chambers of Commerce and other strategic partners on the design and delivery of business support programmes. We bring expert advice and experience to project teams on the business needs of creative industries and funding mechanisms for growing SMEs and start-ups.

Advantage Creative worked with partners on the programme design for the Factory programme of Creative Industries business support in North Staffordshire. Our Business Development Executive originally led the project team and partnership that created and delivered the first Factory programme (2012-2014) that was part funded by ERDF. The programme included creative industries workshops, seminars and conferences, showcasing events, a film festival, and 1:1 business advice to a wide range of Creative Industry SMEs and start-ups.

Our non-Executive Director, Fred Brookes, also has intimate knowledge of the Creative Leicestershire programme of support for creative businesses and artists, where he works as a Business Advisor.
