supporting creative founders

Advantage Creative 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, established in 2003, was one of the first venture capital funds dedicated to investing in the creative industries. 

The demonstrable impact of our investments helped stimulate a much healthier investment ecology for the creative industries in the UK.

We now focus on supporting creative and tech entrepreneurs build successful business through mentoring, coaching, and business accelerators. 

Our team is made up of a diverse range of creative & tech company founders, entrepreneurs, and sector-specific experts.

We all have one thing in common: a passion for supporting creative entrepreneurs on their route to success.
