Women In Innovation Awards

UK business women have the opportunity to apply for one of 8 Women in Innovation Awards, where they can win £50,000 funding each and a bespoke package of mentoring, coaching and business support.


The competition led by Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, is looking for women who are rising stars in business innovation.

The aim of this competition is to find women with exciting, innovative ideas and ambitious plans that will inspire others.



Applicants must be confident, with the support of an award, that they can make a significant contribution to one of the Industrial Strategy Grand Challenges:

  1. Artificial intelligence and data.
  2. Ageing society.
  3. Clean growth.
  4. Future of mobility.

The competition is split into 2 phases. In phase 1 the written application will be assessed by independent experts. In phase 2 the shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by a panel of experts.

The awards are for female founders, co-founders or senior decision makers working in companies that have been operating for at least one year.

The Competition closes on Wednesday 3 October 2018 at 12:00pm for more information and to apply visit the Innovation Funding Service
