Innovate UK’s Global Incubator Programme is an acceleration programme for innovative companies to work with world-leading incubators abroad. We are looking to recruit a cohort of 6-8 companies in the Clean Growth sector to join our programme delivered in partnership with a leading incubator space in New York, USA.


The Programme will be delivered in four stages:



Preparation workshops delivered to the entire group in the UK. Participants will work with an EDGE innovation and growth specialist who will work with them to develop a strategic development plan for the programme. The group will receive an overview of the innovation and sector landscape of the US market and guidance to maximise the incubation experience.


A market visit as a group, providing the opportunity to consider technology and market fit, preliminary customer validation and an introduction to ecosystem players. This will be the start of each participants Market Discovery work that will take place throughout the 6-month Programme.


Upon completion of the 6-month Programme the participants will continue to work with their EDGE specialist to exploit the programme and consider the potential funding, connections, skills and expertise required to exploit the opportunities developed during the Programme.
