Public funding and private financing

We work with clients from creative and cultural enterprises.

"We wanted to partner with someone who could bring thinking from the commercial sector and apply it in a way that was appropriate for the funded arts sector. GMV's work advising the RSC, plus Mandy's experience in arts and culture and their method of working with clients as part of the team gave us confidence that they would understand us and how we work as a small scale touring theatre. GMV's credentials and track record with business modelling and development were essential to the success of our bid." Annie Ukleja, General Manager, Miracle Theatre

We help you work out the strategy and business plan for your project, product, service or business and the user or consumer needs that it meets.

With you we gather the evidence needed to back up your plan – including existing and new target audiences and markets.

We will advise on the best mix of public and private finance.

With public funds this involves being part of their networks and building partnerships that will work for both for winning the funding and delivering results. We can help with the application process and – once funded – project management, evaluation, commercial strategy and communications. (See an overview of how we can help at each stage.)

With private finance we advise on financiers, staging and structuring, valuation, pitch and negotiating the deal.

We can also help you with R&D tax credit claims.
