About us - Innovate UK


What we do

We help companies, through three strands of activity:

  • inspire: to make the opportunity visible and compelling
  • involve: to bring relevant organisations and people together
  • invest: to convene the resources needed, including our own.

We do this in our five strategic theme areas and through the six strong foundations that underpin all our activities.

We help companies access the expertise and equipment they need, build the partnerships that will help them go faster, and fund the innovation work through grants or loans.

We support the very best ideas from business, as determined through free and fair competition.
