Deadline looms for Creative Scale-Up applications

Creative businesses in the West Midlands, the West of England and Greater Manchester have until 12 June to sign up to the region’s Creative Scale-Up programme.
Launched in January by the Growth Company and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and fully funded by DCMS, the programme has now been adapted to help businesses tackle the current challenges posed by Covid-19 and to bounce back into growth. Sam Whitear, Creative Scale-Up programme project manager, said: “We launched Creative Scale-Up as a programme to help enable businesses strengthen and sharpen up their skills, review their strategies and benefit from peer-to-peer learning, and all of these are even more important right now. Creative Scale-Up adds further scale and depth to the services we are offering for the creative sector, including the relaunched Greater Connected programme, and crucially it supports Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham’s Build Back Better programme aimed at helping the region come back stronger after Covid-19.” All modules of the Creative Scale-Up programme will now be delivered virtually.
