Young Innovators’ programme

Support, advice and funding for young innovators to explore new ideas for enterprise

Developed by Innovate UK and the Prince’s Trust, the Young Innovators’ programme is open to 18-30 year olds who are looking to take their ideas to the next level.

Support includes:

  • 12 regional innovation live events across the UK in early January 2018
  • an award competition opening in February 2018
  • an award package being presented in March 2018

The award package will include:

  • an allowance to cover living costs (similar to an apprenticeship)
  • one to one coaching and mentoring from an Innovation Champion
  • a pot of funding to support specific requirements, eg travel to meet customers/partners, attending relevant training courses, equipment, hiring office space and IT support

Those who do not win an award package will still have access to the innovation module and support offered by Enterprise Online.
