In Britain, New Creative-Business Website Draws Support - NY Times

LONDON — The fashion folk were arriving in Paris for the men’s wear shows, and Prime Minister David Cameron was at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

But the lights were still burning Wednesday night at 10 Downing Street for a gathering of Britain’s design talent and to toast the introduction of Creative Entrepreneurs, a website intended to help what it calls “creative people” become successful.
Champagne flowed — as did elderflower cocktails for those observing a dry January — as a throng of film directors, actors, journalists, fashion designers and music executives held court on the Persian rugs of the three state drawing rooms. Ambassadors for the initiative, including the luxury-accessories designer Anya Hindmarch; Jamal Edwards, founder of the music channel SBTV; and Rohan Silva, co-founder of the creative work space Second Home, mingled with guests beneath gleaming chandeliers.
“The government has fully thrown its weight behind incubators supporting burgeoning British technology start-ups in recent years,” said Carolyn Dailey, the founder of the website. “So, it is fantastic to see a turning of attentions towards the creative industries.”
Ms. Dailey, a former managing director of Time Warner in London, was standing beneath a commanding portrait of Queen Elizabeth I and talking with Matthew Barzun, the United States ambassador to Britain.
