IPA welcomes Creative Industries - Routes to Finance launch
The launch includes a free guide to financing for creative businesses and the announcement of a £40m Edge Creative Enterprise Fund, backed by the Government’s British Business Bank, available to fast-growing small and medium-sized creative industries.
Says IPA Finance Director Tom Lewis "All our member agencies need to have a sound grasp of finance to thrive commercially; the ICAEW's guide supports our training and qualifications in this area, most notably the Commercial Certificate.
"Our members are increasingly tech-led, and tech is joining advertising as one of the UK's great success stories, so support for this growing area is especially welcome.
UK advertising, a significant source of inward investment, is worth around £20bn annually and employs around 500,000 people.
