Funding news

Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, has selected a pool of investor partners. These investor partners have demonstrated that they have the credibility, capability, capacity and appetite to invest in innovative, technology-led SMEs that align with our programmes. These programmes will focus on the future economy as described in our plan for action.

The future economy investor partnership programme brings together:

  • Innovate UK’s expertise in identifying innovation and using grant funding to change the risk profile of businesses
  • investor partners’ aligned funding and expertise in identifying opportunities and teams that can best use extra investment finance

This approach aims to provide you with support for research and development, and access to the capital investment you need to develop and commercialise your innovations.

Innovate UK EDGE can develop your investment readiness and growth strategy. Innovate UK KTN’s Investment team can help you to find an investor partner to work with.
