Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, is inviting investors to partner with us for this healthy ageing investor partnership programme. Together we will align Innovate UK’s grant funding of relevant R&D projects alongside your investment in UK micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) concerned with developing products, services or business models, which address one or more of the 7 themes of healthy ageing.
We are seeking investor partners that are looking to invest in high growth potential SMEs that aspire to finding solutions to address the issues associated with ageing well. The SMEs will be selected in a later competition.
The aim of this programme is to encourage investment in innovative companies with developed technologies that are working towards providing 5 extra years of healthy active life whilst also addressing social inequalities. Investor partners must provide wider business skills and experience as well as financial investment.
The Healthy Ageing investor partnership programme consists of 2 competitions:
- This investor partner selection competition
- The SME competition opens in spring 2021. This will be for SMEs to submit project applications for grant support with a clear alignment for private investment.
The competition closes at 11am UK time on the deadline stated.
This competition is not offering any funding.
