The Business Development Producer will support the commercial development of creative technology companies and projects supported by Watershed through Pervasive Media Studio residency and/or through key partnership projects in the region. It will be funded by and have a focus on the work of the South West Creative Technology Network (https://swctn.org.uk/about/) which works with Universities and businesses across the South West to innovate through creative technologies.

We have been supporting the creative development of individuals and companies through the Pervasive Media Studio for ten years. While we don’t distinguish between commercial and cultural practice, we have learned that establishing a sustainable/growing business is complex and difficult. This is especially true for many in our community whose ideas fall between and across established routes to investment, market strategies and business models because they are making something new.
