The Young Innovators Programme

The Young Innovators Programme

The Young Innovators programme – which includes annual awards for young people with creative and ground-breaking business ideas and a high-profile #IdeasMeanBusiness campaign – is all part of Innovate UK's commitment to changing the world by investing in young people with big environmental, societal and economic ambitions.

The programme has awarded more than 250 aspiring entrepreneurs across the UK with a support package that includes:

  • a £5,000 financial grant
  • an allowance for living costs
  • one-to-one business coaching

The aim of the Young Innovators Awards is to find the UK's next generation of innovators – high-potential young people with great business ideas!
