NEW DIGITAL FUNDING SCHEME

Digital entrepreneurs are invited to join a £200,000 scheme aimed at helping to bring new UK innovations to market. IC Tomorrow, a technology strategy board programme, will invest in up to 20 consumer trials across creative market sectors including music, television, film, and publishing. The scheme will be high profile and provide the entrepreneurs with the ability to work closely with leading players in the digital industry. The first stage of the process will close on 11 March 2011 with the submission of a video and simple business plan. 40 applications will be chosen to go through to the face to face panel phase at the end of March.
