Investing in Innovation & Creativity
Exploring the exciting opportunities for investing in screen-based businesses
The creative industries contribute £111.7b GVA to the UK economy, with 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.
Joining forces with the BFI and Creative England, UKBAA are delighted to once again be part of Creative Enterprise Evolve – a programme dedicated to driving investment into innovative screen businesses. 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 – this programme is showcasing the high growth potential of this exciting space.
Tune in on 14th October for the official launch event, where in the heart of the BFI London Film Festival 2020, UKBAA and Creative England will bring together a panel of industry experts to delve into the tremendous opportunities offered for early stage investors in creative screen businesses and explore how integral the creative industries are to economic recovery in a post-pandemic world.
