Our monthly Innovation Breakfast (‘Brunch’ with your own supplies while we are in lockdown) events have now gone virtual!

£1.25bn coronavirus support package fund for innovative companies

The Chancellor announced a funding package late April to support start-ups and R&D businesses in the current crisis.

Launched in May, there will be a Future Fund of £250m that will be delivered in partnership with British Business Bank to help businesses fund raise in the equity market. This convertible loan fund is targeted at companies that have already raised a minimum fund of £250k in the last five years. Another £750m grant and loan fund will be made available through Innovate UK.

We have invited speakers from both organisations to tell us more about these funds and how companies can apply for them at the June’s Innovation Breakfast (Brunch!) event.
