What our clients say about us

As a freelancer in the cultural industry in Cornwall, Cultivator was the only place to turn. It gave me the funding, confidence and skills to improve my business. This crucial support enabled more profitability and wider social impact.

Claire English, Freelance Curator

it's not very often you come across business support and you feel like it's geared towards you. I feel like I can go into the meeting and be totally honest and they'll just get it. Rather than have to speak in a different businessy language.

Heather Scott, Designer

The help and support provided by Cultivator was excellent. They were able to recommend really great people for the job and it was so helpful to have a grant. This was just the beginning and the impetus I needed to take things forward.

Erica Swain, Tamarisk Gallery, Isles of Scilly

Cultivator helped us rethink who we are and how we share that story – it transformed our brand, retail and customer service offer.

Annette MacTavish, Museum of Cornish Life

I can't stress enough how pivotal Cultivator was in helping me to take my screenwriting career to the next level. The financial support plus the one-on-one support of my business advisor - and her championing me and my work, was incredible!

Lara Barbier, Screenwriter

The ongoing, in-depth, dynamic, focused, practical and targeted support that Cultivator is able to offer creative businesses is pure gold. I have been able to develop my business from the tentative ideas stage to building momentum and recognition, as well as respect as a designer in a very competitive market place.

Franca Westaway, Textile Designer

Thanks to Cultivator, I am for the very first time in my career, completely self- contained as a recording artist, live performer and video director.
