Invest in Creative – Music sector deep dive
On 10th February, the music industry took centre stage as we explored everything from where the investment opportunities are to what markets are waiting to be tapped into, and how angels could look to dip their toes into the sector.
Hosted by UKBAA and ScaleUp Institute, this deep dive was part of the new Invest in Creative toolkit developed as part of the DCMS Creative Scale-Up Programme. During this virtual discussion, Irene Graham OBE, CEO of ScaleUp Institute, sat down with Paul Pacifico, CEO of the Association of Independent Music, Zena White, Global Managing Director and SVP of Partisan Records, and David Walsh, Angel Investor and Investor Director of ClicknClear to help our community navigate the industry.
The panel came together to share their perspectives on what areas of the industry offer potential growth opportunities, offer insights on where returns are being seen, and even highlighted some excellent investment case studies. This 60-minute session was the perfect way to tap into the UK music sector and hear from the experts why you should get more curious about backing music innovators.
Part of the exciting Creative Scale-Up initiative funded by the Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS), Invest in Creative has been developed by ScaleUp Institute and UK Business Angels Association to create an investor journey like no other. Invest in Creative has been created in partnership with, West of England Combined Authority, West Midlands Combined Authority and Greater Manchester Combined Authority & The Growth Company.
