Transform your ideas into a successful business
Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation and is sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Since 2007, when it became an independent public body, Innovate UK has invested more than £2.5bn, helping 8,500 organisations across all economic sectors and UK regions. Match funding from industry has doubled this figure.
The agency also funds business and research collaborations. Through its ‘open grant funding’ competition in 2020 it made £25m available to invest in business-focused ‘game-changing and commercially viable innovative or disruptive ideas’.
If you have a business with a focus on innovation or are trying to bring a new product to market, Swoop can help you access specific innovation funding, and potentially blend this with other types of funding and support.
