You need a crowdfunding project to apply for funding. Start or continue adding your project and, if eligible, you'll be prompted to apply.

Projects must benefit people in Plymouth and surrounding areas and priority will be given to one or more of the following:

  • Projects must be in the creative industries
  • Be an early stage startup and/or starting a new venture
  • Projects must have a focus on digital innovation, for example; a new digital service product, or looking to adapt digitally.
  • Projects can also be developing a new digital element of an existing business eg. online shop, virtual workshops etc.

Eligible projects will receive £250 towards their target and also expert crowdfunding advice from one of our coaches.

To receive a £250 match, projects must raise at least £250 from the crowd (from a minimum of 10 unique backers).

The money pledged will be released once a project has closed successfully.
