About this event
Women in Innovation Awards 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 Edge Advisor, Carolyn Hooker, and previous finalists Gabriela Isas and Bella Trang Ngo. Sam Jackman, winner of the Innovate Design Foundations Round and the Covid Rapid Response Round will then share her experience on completing the application process and how to give this your best chance of success.
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 Edge Advisor): Why the specific women’s award?
Case Studies: hear from previous finalists Gabriela Isas (Good With) and Bella Trang Ngo (Brarista)
Sam Jackman (Boost Innovations): 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.
