In these cash-strapped times, it's understandable that businesses are often reluctant to explore new ideas. But, we believe that innovating is the best way to get an edge over competitors.
That's why we're launching Creative Credits - a world-first programme that helps businesses to develop their ideas by teaming up with creative firms.
We're inviting Manchester-based small businesses from all sectors to apply for 'Creative Credits' worth £4,000. These can be used to purchase services from a local creative firm. All we ask is an investment of at least £1,000 and we'll top it up with £4,000.
We're creating an online gallery of some of Manchester's brightest and most creative companies, which small business can browse through to decide who they want to work with.
Applying for Creative Credits is easy
Applications will open on 9 September. At this time, online application forms and further details about how to apply will be available at www.creative-credits.org.uk
