Women in Innovation Awards

After discovering that women are 50% less likely to set up a business than men (only 1 in 7 applicants are women) Innovate UK decided to take positive action.

To help remove the barriers faced by female entrepreneurs today, Innovate UK ran its first female-only competition last year.

Following the success of the first awards, they announced new support and funding for the second-round of their women-only competition. The funding and support package aims to encourage more females in innovation, focusing on:

  • AI and the data economy
  • Clean growth
  • Future of mobility
  • Ageing society

2018 winners will be announced shortly. To stay up to date with the competition or submit for upcoming awards, subscribe to Innovate UK’s YouTube channel here.
