Investment Accelerator: Innovation in Precision Medicine briefing event
The Knowledge Transfer Network, on behalf of Innovate UK, is hosting a briefing event the 31st July 2018 to present to the SMEs community the new Innovate UK investment opportunity: “Investment accelerator: Innovation in precision medicine”.
The event will also be streamed live on the new KTN YouTube Channel. Please register here to join the live webcast.
This is an Investment Accelerator competition providing simultaneous grant funding and private investment for early stage projects led by UK companies.
Up to £6 millions of grant funding and a comparable amount of private equity investment is available to support business-led innovation of precision medicine technologies. Proposals should address the clinical need for a disruptive change to the way that we accurately diagnose, monitor and treat disease.
The competition is open to single SMEs who are looking for grant funding and who want to establish an equity relationship with a UK venture capital firm.
On the day the scope of the competition will be presented together with the application process. The 13 private investors that have been selected to co-fund this competition will attend the event and delegates from the industries will be given the opportunity to network with them as well as with the other attendees.
The “Investment accelerator: Innovation in precision medicine” will open on 23rd July, and the competition brief will then be made available on the Innovate UK competition page.
