Through our programmes and competitions, we match the best UK-based engineers and inventors with mentors from the Royal Academy of Engineering. Each of these prominent business angels, industry leaders, investors and business icons provides bespoke support to help shape ideas into a commercially viable reality. 

With the mentors' unparalleled experience, networks, insights into funding and so much more, we make sure that Hub members get their move to market right. And our mentors get to be in at the beginning of the most exciting new technologies and companies in the UK.
