4iP Launches Funding

14th July 2009 by Maura McHugh

Channel 4’s Innovation for the Public fund – 4iP – has joined forces with UnLtd to announce a package of funding and support to champion fresh ideas from new talent across the UK.

Our joint scheme is aimed at individuals looking for up to £5,000 to get their socially motivated digital media idea off the ground. It targets those who need mentoring and support to take those first steps.

From its launch, 4iP has set out to support innovation at all levels. Ideas that are early and risky, small and focused or big and crunchy. This means working with both talented and promising individuals producing their first ever digital media idea to large organisations delivering flagship projects.

UnLtd’s experience of supporting and developing social entrepreneurs as a force for change in the UK combined with 4iP’s focus on innovation in public service digital media will:

  • help individuals develop early stage ideas and prototypes; and
  • build the skills, capabilities and partnerships to turn prototypes into businesses.

This partnership is a fantastic opportunity for 4iP to reach a rich vein of untapped potential. Using UnLtdā€™s pan-UK infrastructure to support talented individuals, 4iP will share its digital media expertise to maximise the potential of their projects.

Please read the terms and conditions carefully. Information on how to apply is on the web site.
