Please read the Guidance Notes for more information on eligibility and what support we provide. We open for applications in January and July each year.
See our Hints and Tips for a full list of application questions and advice on each.
Tell us about yourself and your idea so we can assess if you and your innovation are suitable for our programme. It will take about 60 minutes to complete, and if successful we will invite you to stage two. This is an administrative step only – it does not consider how good the idea is or your potential as an entrepreneur, but whether you meet the criteria of the programme.
This is more detailed, covering you, the team, the technology and business model. This will be reviewed by a panel of experts drawn from our network, and if successful you will be invited to the third and final stage, to pitch to our selection panel.
Join a Tech Transfer Officer workshop online
In addition to workshops for applicants, we are hosting workshops specifically for Tech Transfer Officers (TTOs). Applicants that are shortlisted in Stage 1, move on to Stage 2 of the application. In Stage 2, researchers will reach out to their commercialisation or tech transfer office to complete sections of the application. In order to familiarise Tech Transfer Officers with our application, we invite officers to join a workshop to learn about the process, questions and expectations. We provide general hints and tips for success and include time for Q&As.
