Join with women across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to hear about Innovate UK’s Women in Innovation Award 2021/22

Are you a woman with a new creation, idea or invention? Are you looking for funding and a comprehensive support programme?

Innovate UK’s Women in Innovation Award 2021/22 could be for you. 20 female entrepreneurs will receive an award of £50,000 each, as well as a bespoke package of business support, coaching and mentoring.

Join with women across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to hear from Innovate UK’s Carolyn Hooker and previous winner Sam Jackman on the need for this funding, what it is like to receive it and how to tackle the application process.

This event is open to all, whether you have never considered applying or have applied previously and are considering re-applying. The aim of the event is to remove any barriers or uncertainties about the process and to empower you to complete the application.


Carolyn Hooker (Innovate UK): Why the specific women’s award?

Case Studies: hear from previous award winners, including Gabriela Isas (Good With) and Bella Trang Ngo (Brarista)

Sam Jackman: So you want to apply… what next?

Following the event, you will be offered the opportunity to attend a one-hour one-to-one business support session.

If you are considering applying for the award, don’t miss KTN’s briefing event on 24 August, which will provide all the practical information you need to go through the process, including the award deadline.

This event is fully funded through Unlocking Potential’s Future Focus programme supporting SMEs in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
