Indie Growth Fund

The Indie Growth Fund was launched in 2014 to provide additional support to the UK independent creative sector by providing access to funding for indies based in the UK to help them to grow and develop their business.

Since its inception, the fund has made 17 investments and there are now 10 companies in the portfolio, including: Eagle Eye, Eleven Film, Firecrest Films, Five Mile Films, Lightbox Media, Parable, Spelthorne Community Television, True Vision Yorkshire, Two Rivers Media, and Voltage TV.

With a mixture of both scripted and unscripted companies, the portfolio represents an exciting and diverse mix of UK production talent. From start-up companies to more established Indies with ambitious growth plans, the Indie Growth Fund is a strategic partner offering support, guidance and strategic advice to help grow the company towards an ultimate sale.

The Growth Fund is headed up by Caroline Murphy and reports in to an Advisory Board chaired by Martin Baker, Channel 4’s Director of Commercial Affairs, which also includes Lorraine Heggessey, Marjorie Kaplan and Tracy Forsyth as Creative Mentors. 

Its future strategy is focused on investing in companies in the Nations and Regions as well as interesting digital and diverse businesses across the UK. 

Caroline and her team are always keen to hear from companies with the tenacity, ambition and vision to grow their and take their business on to the next level. To get in touch, please email: growthfund@channel4.co.uk.
