profit for purpose

Advantage Creative CIC supports the development of innovation, entrepreneurship, and talent in the creative industries.

We reinvest all profits from our investments into further activity to support creative entrepreneurs.

Our Advantage Creative Fund was set up in 2003 as one of the first venture capital funds dedicated to investing in the creative industries. 

Our investment of £5.4m in creative industries companies levered a further £5.9m of private investment and helped stimulate a much healthier investment ecology for the creative industries.

We now focus on supporting creative entrepreneurs through the early stages of building their business.

“Access to finance has been identified as one of the major challenges to the growth and maturity in the UK creative industries. A large proportion of the sector is made up of small businesses, to it is crucial that the UK’s business environment enable such companies to be born, thrive and regenerate.”
