Help for small businesses through Innovation Voucher Scheme

Posted Tuesday 29 July 2014

Innovation VouchersApplications for innovation vouchers in technology, data and sustainability are now open.

The Innovation Voucher Scheme, run by the Technology Strategy Board, provides funding so that small and medium sized business can work with an external expert, such as Kingston University, for the first time.

The idea is that the voucher would help a business to pay for services to gain new knowledge and facilitate innovation, development and growth. Help from an expert could include advice on an innovative idea, learning more about using design within your business or the management and use of intellectual property.

Vouchers for up to £5,000 are available to businesses in the following sectors:

  • Agrifood;
  • Built Environment;
  • Cyber Security;
  • Energy,
  • Water and Waste;
  • Open Data Innovators and Inventors;
  • Space and High Value Manufacturing

This current round runs until 22 October 2014. Visit the Innovation Voucher website for more information.
