On 20 November, we co-hosted an event at our offices with Creative England as part of their Creative Enterprise Evolve initiative for a group of approximately 20 film, TV, games and animation companies.
The event focused on raising finance and the rule changes to the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) in 2018. There were insightful talks given by the Enterprise Investment Scheme Association and Calculus Capital (who have raised an EIS fund in conjunction with the British Film Institute which has been approved by HMRC), and a stimulating group discussion about raising finance in the current climate.
Edward Lane and Katrien Roos spoke about some of the issues faced by creative companies raising equity investment and project-by-project finance respectively, exploring the pros and cons of each approach.
If you would like to learn more about raising investment for your company or project, or about SEIS and EIS, please contact Charlie Leveque or Alan Moss.
