We’re proud to be sponsoring Indielab, an annual business-growth programme for independent TV production companies, for a second year running.
The programme, which is backed by the Mayor of London, opened its 2018 application process on Friday with a renewed focus this year to support BAME and female-owned companies.
As in previous years, the 2018 programme will offer 15 up-and-coming production companies a tailored consulting process designed by the sector for the sector.
The programme is crafted to provide cross-sector support, with each indie receiving specialist training from more than 50 industry leaders. Then, if relevant, the participating companies are put forward to pitch to a network of industry investors.
Partners Colin Howes and Sarah Lazarides will share their in-depth industry knowledge as part of the high-level briefing sessions.
TVA, the television affairs consultancy set up as a joint venture with Harbottle & Lewis in September 2015, is also a sponsor.
“We’re thrilled to be sponsoring Indielab’s 2018 programme,” said Colin. “Being able to meet and support the next cohort of indies, and to witness them establish themselves in the early stages of their journey, is really exciting.
“Indielab is a great avenue for a number of up-and-coming indies to get the investment they need to kick-start their businesses and to flourish, especially within such a competitive environment.”
