Creative Industry Finance

Creative United provides a range of financial products and services designed to enable the growth and development of the UK’s cultural and creative industries. We are thrilled to be partnering alongside Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and the Creative Network South, to support the continued growth of creative and cultural companies in and around the Solent. Our Creative Industry Finance (CIF) programme has delivered around 1,000 hours of free, 1-to-1 business advice and guidance to nearly 200 creative enterprises and cultural organisations across England. We are very proud to say that we’ve introduced our clients to in the region of £300,000 of business development loans accessed from our lending partners. If you’re running a creative or cultural company and you’re looking at ways to expand, diversify or become more selfsufficient, then we look forward to hearing from you. We’ll be taking part in a number of events across your region, providing the opportunity for you to find out more about what we do, and to try a business advice taster session.
