"CREA is a private financial institution supervised by the Bank of Spain, resulting from a successful public-private partnership between the Ministry of Culture and EGEDA. It was established in 2005 to address the financing challenges faced by SMEs in the audiovisual sector. CREA tackled this issue by assuming the risk on their behalf. In 2014, a period of mergers of SGRs (Sociedades de Garantía Recíproca) began in Spain, and CREA actively participated in this process. Currently, there are 18 regional SGRs, with CREA being the only one operating at a sectorial and national level. We strongly advocate for specialization as a key factor for success. In 2017, the European Union launched a specific program, funded by Creative Europe and implemented by the EIF (European Investment Fund) through various financial institutions across different countries, aimed at facilitating access to financing for cultural and creative SMEs. CREA took the lead in Spain and committed to expanding its scope of action to encompass all sectors within the cultural industry, making it the first to do so at the European level. During challenging times, CREA demonstrates its close ties and in-depth understanding of the sector, seeking institutional support to offer improved solutions tailored to the evolving needs of each moment. As we continue to grow, our core focus remains on the audiovisual sector, while we also expand our expertise in other developing areas such as music, theater, other cultural and creative industries, and sports."
