Business Support

Advice – there’s plenty to go round. We offer free, sector-specific information and advice to micro-businesses and individuals working within the creative industries.

So what is a micro-business? A micro-business employs less than 10 people, with a turnover of less than £1.6 million.
We can support you if:

  1. Your business is based in Scotland.
  2. You are working within the following creative industry sectors: advertising, animation, architecture, crafts, dance, design, fashion, film, games, literature, music, photography, publishing, radio, software & apps, theatre, TV and visual arts.
  3. You are not currently in full-time further or higher education.
  4. You are over the age of 16.
  5. Your business employs fewer than 10 people with an annual turnover less than £1.6 million.

We’re a friendly, helpful bunch – not at all like visiting your bank manager! Our Business Support team will take your initial enquiry and tailor the best route through our free advice and support.

As qualified RD1st coaches, our coaching ethos may include directing you to specific online resources or a session with an Adviser.

Our In-house Advisers based in Dundee and Glasgow will explore your needs further alongside our extended family of Industry Associates. They’re not all based in the office though – there’s not enough seats to go round! Have your diary handy when we contact you.

Get in touch to get the ball rolling.
