Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you are an early-stage, pre-seed innovator, or a more established company, there are many networks and resources out there to support your innovation journey. It can be confusing to know which is right for your innovation and stage of business.

Innovate UK Business Connect has a wide network, deep sector expertise, and can connect you to people and organisations to help accelerate your ideas and solve technology problems. But we recognise that it is difficult to know where to start and what to ask us at Innovate UK Business Connect.

We have compiled the following list of online resources to help you identify what help and support you can tap into. These are predominantly available to UK businesses or those looking to set up in the UK. You can pick out which are relevant for you and follow the links to access these services. The list is not intended to be exhaustive, but a starting point to some of your initial questions on where to go, who and what to ask. As these resources are delivered nationally, regionally and by sector, do sign up to our newsletters and follow us on social media. When you contact us, let us know what sector you are in and what support you are looking for, and/or engage with our sector and programme leads directly to see how else we can help.
