“Digital content industries are essential to both the cultural and economic growth of the East Midlands. Throughout 2008/09, EM Media continued to demonstrate the sector’s economic value to the region, as well as its ability to act as a catalyst for ambition, dynamism and growth of the creative economy.
In December 2008 EM Media made its 65th and final investment from the unprecedented EMMI (East Midlands Media Investments) Fund. Investing £6m of European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) finance into a range of film and digital media products generated £33.2m in partnership finance.”
