Creative United have been selected to partner with StartEast

We are delighted to share that we have been selected to partner with StartEast to help support the development of creative businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk.

StartEast is for creative people who love what they do and want to make a living from it. They offer bespoke, targeted, 1-1 business advice and support, workshops and masterclasses as well as grants of between £1,000-£10,000 to help you grow your business.

They aim to work with you to build a support structure that is right for you and your cultural enterprise whether you’re a sole trader, small and medium enterprise (SMEs) or a start up operating in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Our advisors will be working as part of the programme to support businesses to develop an idea or artistic vision, help with business growth and expansion into new markets, securing new contracts, increasing productivity or turnover.

StartEast has been developed by the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership Cultural Board to create a transformational cultural growth programme for the East.

It is funded by Arts Council England and the European Regional Development Fund. StartEast is supported by Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils and delivered by a team at New Wolsey Theatre.
