Young Innovators'

The fact is, if you are a young person who has spotted a solution to a problem no one else can see, or you have an open-minded idea that has the potential to change something or make something better, with the right support and advice you could be at the start of an exciting entrepreneurial journey.

Supporting Young Innovators’, Innovate UK and The Prince’s Trust have teamed up to deliver a unique ‘Young Innovators’ Programme’, championing access to guidance, advice and funding for young people, whatever their background. Using the hashtag – #IdeasMeanBusiness these two support organisations are breaking down the barriers holding young people back from stepping up their ideas to become a reality.

The Young Innovator’s Programme of support includes:

  • 12 Regional Innovation Live events across the UK through February – March 2018 (including an event based in Cambridgeshire)
  • Award competition opening in February 2018
  • Award package being presented in March 2018 

The ‘Young Innovators’ Programme’ is all about believing in the value of your own ideas, and not feeling like you are being held back by social or cultural challenges. So, don’t let that idea go! #IdeasMeanBusiness

Why don’t you see if you are eligible for the support from this innovative new programme here.

If you are successful make sure you look out for the Live event taking place on 5th February at Adastral Park, Ipswich. Find out more here.
