Green Bean Studios has been invited to attend the Create Growth Programme: Investor Roundtable Event in Greater Manchester on 21 September to discuss the challenges and investment opportunities in the creative industries.
Hosted by Innovate UK as part of the DCMS Create Growth Programme, the event brings together regional investors, key stakeholders, and creative businesses with the aim to shine a light on how to drive investment into the sector regionally and nationally.
Earlier this year, Green Bean Studios was awarded funding from Innovate UK’s ‘DCMS Create Growth Fund: Competition 1’ to support further development of their animated children’s TV series. The funding programme is designed to enable high-potential creative businesses to secure investment and scale their businesses.
The new pre-school TV series Green Bean & Friends which is currently in production aims to tackle the global ecological crisis whilst supporting young children in their vital formative years to learn, play, and have fun outdoor adventures. Access to funding will enable Green Bean Studios to reach more children and families globally to help them thrive.
Being part of the Create Growth Programme is crucial at this stage of Green Bean Studios’ growth and development as the business is ready to scale further.
Founder and award-winning author, Anita Frost, says:
“As a creative business leader in the UK, being involved in key discussions around investment in the industry is a valuable opportunity for us to help shape the future of the creative industry and continue to make noise so that funding goes where it’s needed.
“There are so many fantastic creative businesses innovating across the UK, helping to tackle key societal issues that affect us all – being involved in the DCMS Create Growth Programme, we have a real chance to make a difference with our brand to protect our planet and support children to develop with confidence.”
