What I do

Jon led the inter-disciplinary team that designs, commissions and delivers multi-million pound innovation programmes that help the creative and digital economy.


Jon previously worked at the BBC in the Future Media & Technology division where his role was to improve the organisation’s engagement with external creative suppliers.

Before this, Jon held a number of senior content and technology commissioning roles at both the BBC and Channel 4. He's been a content producer, tech developer and commissioner - usually where traditonal content meets the internet.

The Investment and Contract Readiness Fund is supporting arts ventures in January as part of a new initiative to bring more capital into the arts sector. This form of funding, which recognises the public and social good that arts organisations can play, might just provide a vital link between grant funding and commercial growth.
