Barclays and Creative England have joined forces to boost growth in the UK’s creative technology sector. They have launched a new accelerator programme, providing creative technology entrepreneurs with the support and help they need early on in their business life cycle.

Barclays and Creative England announced a new partnership that focuses on boosting fast-growing, creative technology businesses.

Together, they have launched a new accelerator, providing creative technology entrepreneurs with the support and help they need early on in their business life cycle. ‘Barclays’ Eagle Lab – Flight’ will be implemented through Barclays’ successful Eagle Labs programme and led by Creative England. The accelerator will run in the Brighton Eagle Lab in early 2017.

Matt Hancock, Minister of State for Digital and Culture said: “This government is committed to backing the success of the UK’s creative industries as design and digital capability will be at the heart of the future economy. This great initiative from Creative England and Barclays will help deliver vital knowledge and skills to businesses in this sector and ultimately boost the number of UK scale-ups. I'd urge any creative business wanting to expand and grow to apply for this scheme.”

This programme is open to applications now until 31 December 2016. Read more here.
