Creative businesses across England have the chance to secure a £12,500 investment plus a package of business support to develop their most innovative digital ideas. Creative England’s Digital Accelerator, supported by Silicon South – Dorset’s creative and digital hub, provides an opportunity for up to ten businesses to pitch their ideas to a panel of leading experts, from varied digital businesses, and be in with a chance of securing seed investment.
The accelerator programme welcomes a range of digital business ideas to apply – everything from app developers to gaming, animation and special effects. Also eligible are creative digital companies that want to innovate traditional sectors such as healthcare, aerospace, finance, or climate change. Selected companies will also enrol on a full mentorship programme with industry veterans. Successful applicants will receive a programme of regular support including workshop sessions, professional coaching and a two day residential of comprehensive business support to help take their product or service to market.
