We now have a signed contract with 4IP with funding from Screen West Midlands and Advantage West Midlands – thanks to Daniel Heaf, Melanie Hayes and Jason Hall in particular.
The pre-publicity is out there in the Guardian today, thanks to Jemima Kiss.
Money is starting to come through and we can now get the show on the road.
So next – build the project up: recruit some staff, get a base, rapidly agree a delivery contract with Helen Milner’s excellent team at UK online centres, get engagement and training materials together, build a core website. Start to trailblaze with some adventurous partners on the ground, keep building partnerships. And do all the fiddly start up things you have to do with a new company.
As part of all that i shall also take the hyperlocal alliance on to the next stage.
Next on this site will be a job ad for someone to work on the project with me.
