Business advice for London based film production company High Six Media
We came to Creative Industry Finance when we were desperate to grow, but the banks were reluctant to lend to small businesses. The support we had from our Business Advisor Remi was invaluable; she gave us some great guidance and helped us deal with issues like slow paying clients. It was a proud day when we told her our business had been approved for a loan.
