4th, 7th, 10th & 11th August And 4th September 2020

We are aiming to fund ideas for prototypes in the field of Data that are brave and distinctive, that open up the field to new voices and challenge the status quo.

We are interested in collaborative working practices, and in alternative business models. We want to grow creative businesses across the South West.

We anticipate awarding grants of between £10k and £40k, and would encourage applications of all sizes between these limits. Prototyping will run from December 2020 for three months with a SWCTN Data Showcase between March – June 2021. We expect prototype teams to commit to the programme during this period.

What you get:

  • Money to pay for the development of your prototype
  • Full ownership of your intellectual property (IP)
  • A collaborative cohort of other teams prototyping in the Data theme to share with and learn from
  • Access to the South West Creative Technology Network’s partnership and members
  • Support from a Producer, a Knowledge Exchange Manager and Business Development Manager
  • A showcase for your prototype with investors and the public
  • Business development support to help you refine your business role model proposition and identify additional next stage funding opportunities

Closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 7th September 2020
