Why are we doing this?
The UK has some of the world's best and brightest creative talent. However, many founders of creative businesses may not establish their firm with the goal of growing it to scale. There is often a need for access to trusted, credible sources of advice and expertise to help drive these businesses through successive stages of growth.
What are we doing?
Our Creative Business Mentor Network provides access to a large number of experienced and commercially successful business mentors who can help take ambitious businesses with growth potential to the next level. The Network, now in its fourth year, has helped many creative companies build business success in a short time.
Mentors on our programme include Charles Wace, non-executive chairman of Twofour and non-executive director of Boom Pictures; Tim Bevan, CEO Working Title Films; and Chris Hirst, CEO, Grey London.
Want to get a Mentor - what's next?
We are now interested in starting discussions with companies who wish to be part of our Sept 2014 cohort. Our latest cohort began in April 2014 and we welcome ambitious creative companies with an appetite for growth to apply online to get a mentor.
Who are we looking for?
Our programme best supports emergent or established creative companies with ambitions for growth who ideally meet the following criteria:
- registered company in the UK
- minimum of three years trading with year on year growth
- working within one or more of these sectors - advertising, film, TV, digital media
- a minimum turnover of £1m.
