InvestEU – ensuring support for cultural and creative businesses

Liveurope have joined forces with 25 other organisations from across Europe's cultural and creative sectors to address a letter to European Commissioners Thierry Breton (Internal Market) and Paolo Gentiloni (Economy) regarding the EU’s flagship investment programme InvestEU.

Access to affordable debt and equity financing was already needed before the pandemic, and it is even more essential today as the cultural and creative sector is one of the hardest hit by the Covid crisis. For these reasons, the organisations are calling on the EU to preserve this innovative way of generating investment for cultural and creative businesses by ensuring that a suitable budget is earmarked for the industry in the InvestEU fund.
