The last 18 months has seen a massive diversification of the ways people working in independent music can raise money for their projects or businesses – from Arts Council England’s Momentum Fund and new government- and private equity-backed loan and venture capital schemes, to crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending.
What does the landscape look like now? When, and for which kinds of people in the industry, are different types of support relevant and likely to be most useful?
