INNOVATE2SUCCEED


We can support eligible companies with this fully funded programme designed to drive growth among SMEs by raising their internal capacity to innovate.

Advisers at RTC will work with companies to understand the barriers to process, product and service innovation and provide support to develop an action plan to help them achieve their strategic growth plans.

These action plans will consist of modules delivered by specialists working on innovate2succeed and, where appropriate, will include work with service providers in the wider business support community.

  • New markets - understanding market entry requirements, finding partners, competitor analysis and key characteristics of target markets
  • How the business can foster creativity and generate and exploit ideas
  • How the business can work better both internally and in collaboration with others to improve innovation management

  • Review how to maximise innovation potential of staff
  • Help the business to identify and access alternative forms of finance and support
  • Review the business's management of its intellectual assets
  • Provide other tailored support, for example benchmarking innovation activities against European peers

This programme is designed to support ambitious businesses that wish to grow internationally and recognise that innovation could play a critical part in their growth plans.

innovate2succeed is open to businesses from all sectors although eligibility rules apply and some services may be restricted to SMEs in certain Local Enterprise Partnership areas.
