Their invitation comes from Thanet District Council, for the Southeast Urban Coast Creative Enterprise Support Scheme (SUCCESS) project, funded by the government’s Regional Growth Fund.

Applicants will need to provide private match-funding and the investment will need to create new jobs. The aim is to help creative businesses in Thanet grow, become sustainable and create more jobs in the sector.

The creative umbrella includes nterprises in all design fields, art and crafts, performance, recording, radio, TV and film production, gaming, software design, galleries and venues, music, dance and theatre, and educational and community arts..

All ambitious entrepreneurs in Thanet’s thriving creative sector are urged to attend to find out more about the fund and who is eligible, to gather tips on how to apply and to network with other businesses.

Council Leader, Cllr Clive Hart, said: “This fund is a chance for small creative businesses in Thanet to grow and we hope it will also help to attract new businesses to the town. A pot of £2 million is significant and we hope to see lots of creative individuals and budding entrepreneurs at our launch next week.”

SUCCESS will run to December 2014 and as well as Thanet, is open to businesses in Hastings and Clacton.
