Last Thursday the head of the Creative Advantage Fund announced a new £1 million round of investment in the West Midlands creative industries. CAF has so far invested over £1.3 million in small and medium sized enterprises in the creative economy. The Fund’s objective is to bridge the “equity gap”, addressing the reluctance of banks to provide risk capital to small firms in the creative sector. The Fund is now actively seeking investment opportunities in our region, in the range £75,000 to £150,000. Any small or medium sized West Midlands-based creative industries firm with a strong business proposition should contact the Creative Advantage Fund now at: email@example.com
