Lancashire County Council’s Rosebud Fund is looking to back businesses in the creative and digital sector.

Businesses must be based in, or relocating to, the administrative county of Lancashire. They can be operating directly in the creative and digital sector or supporting others.

Rosebud is managed by venture capitalist EV.

Paul Taberner, investment director with EV, said: “In the 26 years it has been in existence, Rosebud has invested in more than 1,000 Lancashire businesses across all sectors. Today, more than ever, it is a valuable source of growth funding at a time when firms are having difficulty in accessing conventional sources of finance.

“While we will still consider applications from good businesses across the board, focusing on creative, digital and other key sectors will provide a more targeted way for Lancashire to build expertise, attract investment and create new jobs in high-growth industries.”
