Ed Vaizey MP, Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, made the announcement during Creative England’s annual conference ‘Creative England Live 2016: Catalyse‘.  

He said in a statement: “Government is already helping to create the right environment for UK businesses to continue to grow, so I am delighted to launch the new Creative Nation programme bringing large organisations and smaller companies together.

It will encourage big businesses from across the UK to explore the boundless possibilities for growth and innovation that the UK’s many small, but exceptionally talented, creative businesses can offer.”

Ed Vaizey also announced for a new corporate partner (medium or large organisations in the private sector) to join up with Creative England to invest more in the country’s most gifted creative entrepreneurs by matching its £250,000 pledge.

Creative England is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the growth of the creative industries in the country.

They are planning to launch a national call later this year for submissions from small creative and digital businesses.
