Advice on Funding

Creative Industries - Routes to Finance Guide is a major initiative by the ICAEW's Corporate Finance Faculty, supported by the Creative Industries Federation and 52 organisations in the UK's creative economy. This guide has been written for creative organisations that are looking to leverage funding and investment from both traditional and non-traditional sources. It's the first comprehensive and bespoke guide for Britain's creative industries.

It outlines:

  • Practical approaches to financial preparation
  • Professional advice
  • Public investment
  • Philanthropic support and private capital

Together these help organisations to develop financial sustainability and resilience. The guide is based on in-depth interviews and contributions by more than 80 professionals - from national cultural institutions, creative businesses, government agencies, investors, lenders and advisory organisations, who were all part of the original research process.

On 31 January 2019, Jamie Watt and Jo Nisbet of Harper Macleod LLP delivered a very interesting and useful session on Funding for Publishing at their Edinburgh office. Their presentation is available here as a PDF. Our members also have access to a recording of a 2020 presentation in the members area.
