Content is Queen Secures Innovate UK Grant to Launch Groundbreaking Audio Marketplace

Feb 14th

In a significant boost to innovation in the audio industry, Content is Queen has been announced as a recipient of an Innovate UK grant. This award propels forward a visionary project aimed at creating a comprehensive marketplace for audio content creators, advertisers, and commissioners.

Content is Queen is a leading advocate for diversity and inclusion in the audio industry. Imriel Morgan, the Founder of Content is Queen says,

“This grant not only recognises our commitment to reshaping the audio industry but also enables us to create more opportunities for diverse voices to be heard.”

The new marketplace initiative aims to streamline the commissioning process, foster creative partnerships, and promote diversity across the board. The marketplace is designed with three key stakeholders in mind: creators, advertisers, and commissioners, each standing to gain unparalleled benefits:

  • Creators will find a nurturing environment to grow their audience, monetise their content, and gain the recognition they deserve.
  • Advertisers are provided with a unique opportunity to connect with diverse, engaged audiences through high-quality, authentic content.
  • Commissioners can discover the next big thing among our pool of global talent, investing in content that drives the industry forward.

The support from Innovate UK enables Content is Queen to fast-track the development of the marketplace, ensuring they can offer these opportunities sooner. Imriel adds “It’s a recognition of our potential to make a significant impact on the UK’s creative and tech industries by promoting diversity, encouraging innovation, and facilitating new revenue streams.”
