Innovate UK have teamed up with The Prince's Trust to launch Ideas Mean Business campaign and Young Innovators’ programme

Jan 16, 2018


On 5th December Innovate UK launched a new initiative in partnership with The Prince’s Trust.

We know that there are young people from a wide range of backgrounds across the UK who have great ideas for innovation but face barriers turning them into reality. A little advice, finding the right support and being inspired to succeed can make all the difference.

 Innovate UK has teamed up with The Prince’s Trust on our Ideas Mean Business campaign to help the next generation make an impact by providing extra knowledge and tools focused on innovation to the support they already provide to young people starting their own business.

 Working with 18-30 year olds who are not in employment, education or training, or are in a form of under-employment, the campaign will ensure those who have an idea for an innovation that could go on to be commercially successful, are presented with a new opportunity to develop it further.
