Creative Enterprise Evolve: Investing in creative innovation

Join us in the heart of London at the iconic British Film Institute and take in the buzz and energy emanating from the creative industries! Investors are invited to attend an evening of networking, collaboration, and hearing pitch presentations from innovative games and digital media businesses at the BFI Southbank, the space where inspiration, creativity, and innovation come to life.

The creative industries contribute £115.9b GVA to the UK economy, with well over £8bn of that attributed to businesses from the creative screen sub-sectors, yet despite this immense contribution, creative industries remain an extremely underserved area for early-stage investment.

From the explosive opportunities in games, animation, and visual effects, to pinpointing the thriving innovations offered by interactive entertainment, high-end TV and content production – UKBAA, Creative England and the British Film Insitute are thrilled to invite investors to hear from a curated group of creative innovators pitching for investment.

Investors are invited to join us for the Evolve: Investing in Creative Innovation networking and pitch showcase, taking place at the ever-fitting, iconic BFI Southbank to meet and network with a group of businesses shaking up such areas as games, content creation, design and more. From games businesses making waves on the international stage to award-winning digital media and content businesses catering to untapped markets, this event is one for the diary.

Join us for an evening of networking over drinks and canapes, pitch presentations, industry insights, and much more, all in the heart of London at the BFI, where creative innovation takes on a new life!
