Sentiment Survey – Creative Industries
Businesses focusing on Animation, Video Games, Film, High-End TV and Children’s TV have produced over £3.163 bn and £7.91 bn GVA into our economy in the previous four years and this has been supported by significant tax reliefs provided by the Government to encourage investment in these sectors. See report.
Businesses in these sectors have embraced innovation through advances in digital technology, notably also through visual effects and immersive technologies. However, many of these screens focused business are still struggling to access equity investment in the early stages of growth and scale-up. So, we have established a new partnership with Creative England and the British Film Institute to better understand the barriers and opportunities for investment in these areas as identified by our angel and early-stage investment community across the UK.
With this in mind, we would be extremely grateful if you would take just 5 minutes of your time to complete a short online survey – and we should be grateful if you would also pass this onto your investment colleagues so that we can gain a big range of experiences and insights. Follow the survey link here.
Your responses will help us to identify how we can help create more engagement and access for our investors to innovating growth-focused businesses from these sectors and what more needs to be done at a practical and policy level.
The results will be completely anonymised and aggregated, and you will have direct access to the survey report and opportunities to participate in future investment activities. Whether you currently invest in the sectors or not, your views are very important to us. So do please take the survey!
