About the programme
The Innovate UK investor partnership programme tackles the challenges faced by highly innovative UK businesses with strong growth potential in accessing the finance required to grow and scale. It does this by leveraging Innovate UK’s expertise, connections and grant funding whilst encouraging commercial investors to provide finance and business acumen to younger businesses operating in underserved markets.
This is an opportunity for suitable investors to join our existing pool of 54 investor partners. The investor partnership programme will cover the breadth of the future economy, as described in Innovate UK’s plan for action, including net zero, health and wellbeing, next generation digital technologies and technology families. We will also target equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). Further information is provided on the investor partnerships page of the Innovate UK website.
Applications to become an investor partner open on 20th February and close at 11am on Wednesday 29th March 2023. Click here for more details of how to apply.
