Investor Selection – Application Briefing


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 115 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).
