  • Workshops, roundtables, speaker events.

  • Access to the Taylor Centre: a co-working and meeting space in central London.

  • PR and IP support.

  • All travel and accommodation expenses covered.

Leaders of high growth engineering and technology small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the UK will qualify for assistance.

How to Apply:

All applications must be submitted via the online grant system. All applications will be reviewed by an assessment panel consisting of Fellows of the Academy with entrepreneurial and industrial experience and representatives from the investment community.

The programme duration is six months. Successful applicants will be required to attend the induction day. This programme operates twice-yearly.
