Young people can apply for an award to make their business idea a reality. The Award includes a £5,000 grant, business support and a living allowance.

Aged between 18 and 30 years old and looking for business support? Innovate UK is working in partnership with The Prince’s Trust to find young people from across the UK with great business ideas. Their goal is to find a new group of young innovators that, with their help, can turn their great ideas into successful businesses.

They are looking for young people who would benefit most from the Young Innovators Awards, including the financial support and tailored package of expert advice and access to innovation tools and connections on offer. The financial support and tailored coaching and mentoring will be provided directly to the successful applicants.
