We are looking for a broad spectrum of business and products that demonstrate the cross sector impact of creativity; ideas that seek to make a global difference. We’re specifically keen to attract businesses which focus on cross sector innovation – where creative technology and digital is being applied to other sectors. This includes B2B, as well as other sectors which may not be seen as traditionally digital – such as healthcare or tourism. We’re looking for strong digital based ideas – including app, mobile, data, gamification, Internet of things, VR, AR and 3D modelling.
The programme will focus on creative thinking, participation and cross collaborative working. By the end of the programme, we want the participating companies to have a clearly defined, innovative and marketable service or proposition with the potential to scale up.
This high level access to Creative Entrepreneurs and Thought Leaders will provide a wealth of resources and inspiration in the form of a growing archive of FLIGHT Talks and presentations.
All participants will receive up to £25k of investment at the start of the programme. This is offered in two ways: either as an unsecured, interest-free convertible loan, or as an equity investment. The fees for participating on the programme will be deducted from the investment.
The programme culminates in a pitch to investors, giving you the opportunity to potentially secure additional investment from experienced Business Angels and up to £50k follow-on funding from Creative England. This is discretionary, and will be awarded on the strength of the pitch to investors during the programme’s final event.
We will draw from our pool of Creative Advisers to provide the best suited talks
and mentorships for you and your company as part of the Flight programme.
