Ten companies from this year’s CE 50 report have been voted by a panel of creative industry judges to be part of Creative England’s Future Leaders list.
These companies are leading the charge for the creative industries, showcasing the best of what England’s regions have to offer and transforming the country’s economic future. As part of the report Creative England asked a panel of judges to choose their 10 Future Leaders, who have demonstrated innovation, strong growth promise and the potential to disrupt their sector with true innovation.
