Manchester’s K7 Media is working with Pact on a new online tool to help support the commercial interests of UK independent television, film, digital, children’s and animation media companies.

The Pact Growth Accelerator provides resources for independents throughout the UK and is designed to help them grow and develop. It includes business advice, HR support, information on global buyers and new ways to monetise for members of the independent trade body.

K7 Media has provided access to industry reports and will provide ongoing support for the online tool, offering additional research and expertise. A consultation service will also be offered to indies as part of a wider trial.

Head of Strategy, Girts Licis (above), said: “Pact’s new tool is one of a kind, it offers a wealth of resources for those working in the UK’s thriving indie market.

“K7 Media is an international business with its feet firmly in the UK, but with a global exposure. We feel we are in a strong position to share some of our expertise and insights. We are in the privileged position to be able to work as an extension of an indie’s team, when it proves necessary to bring in that additional global element.”
