Innovate UK is working in partnership with The Prince's Trust to find young people from across the UK with great business ideas. Their goal is to find a new group of young innovators that, with their help, can turn their great ideas into successful businesses.

Young people aged between 18 and 30 can apply for the Young Innovators Awards to make their business idea a reality. The Award includes:

  • a £5,000 grant
  • business support through tailored coaching and mentoring
  • a living allowance

The Young Innovators Awards will support up to 100 more young people by 2023 through annual competitions. So far, 24 young people have received Young Innovators awards and 12,000 young people have engaged with the #IdeasMeanBusiness campaign.
