Innovate UK launches new 3 year programme for Young Innovators
New findings from Innovate UK show that a half of young people in the UK think their age is a barrier to business success with nearly a third lacking the confidence they need to turn their idea into a reality.
The findings are released as Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) announces a £2.2m Young Innovators Programme in partnership with The Prince’s Trust.
The national Young Innovators Awards will go to 18 – 30 year olds with a creative and ground-breaking business idea to support them in turning it into reality.
The programme will support up to 100 young people over three years with individuals benefitting from a £5,000 grant, one-on-one coaching and an allowance to cover living costs.
