Fast Start Innovation Grants

Fast Start: Innovation grants are a new initiative from Innovate UK offering up to £50,000 to propel highly innovative ideas that have a clear route to commercialisation.

The grants will only be offered to businesses that have not previously received Innovate UK funding. They will back innovations in one or more of the seven technology areas outlined in the government’s Innovation Strategy:

  • Advanced materials and manufacturing
  • Artificial intelligence, digital and advanced computing
  • Bioinformatics and genomics
  • Engineering biology
  • Electronics, photonics and quantum
  • Energy and environment technologies
  • Robotics and smart machine.

Innovate UK will also ask businesses to consider how their innovation could be part of solving specific challenges of net zero and self-driven healthcare and wellbeing.

Businesses who are offered grant funding, will also be offered tailored business support through Innovate UK EDGE.

Fast Start: Innovation grants will be open for applications 11 to 26 July.
