How we helped a creative agency get off the ground
Designing multimedia content takes specialist facilities and expertise, so finding your feet in the creative industries can be difficult.
With the help of our Enterprise team, two talented design graduates set up their own animation business. Through attending networking events, start-up events and enterprise sessions, Dan Hodgson and Liam Hall were able to stay informed about funding opportunities and meet potential clients.
They were also linked with lawyers and other specialists to help them get their business up and running.
Their studio, Cosmic Monocle, provides 2D animation and illustration services for a variety of clients. They also produced an award-winning short film for children's author Christina Gabbitas, which has been endorsed by the NSPCC and Bernardo's.
“The Enterprise Team helped us to realise that our goal of setting up a company was not only achievable, but that it was the right choice for us. It’s hugely empowering and reassuring to know that there’s a friendly, reliable team available to guide and support you every step of the way.”
