Young Innovators Programme – Northern Ireland
I am getting in touch with you today to ask for your support to promote the following event within your wider community.
We have a fantastic opportunity to get 18-30 year olds in to business. Innovate UK have teamed up with The Prince’s Trust on our Young Innovators Programme campaign to help the next generation make an impact.
Working with 18-30 year olds who are not in employment, education or training, or are in a form of under-employment, the programme will ensure those who have an idea for an innovation that could go on to be commercially successful, are presented with a new opportunity to develop it further.
Event in your area
On 26th February 2018, we are holding an event in Belfast at Entrepreneurial Spark, with young people. We will offer them the tools, support and expert advice to help them realise the potential of their ideas. Following this, we will offer ongoing support to all attendees and each will have the chance to apply for financial support from Innovate UK to develop their plans.
The award package will include:
- An allowance
- 1:1 coaching and mentoring from an Innovation Champion
- A pot of funding to support specific requirements, e.g. travel to meet customers/partners, attending relevant training courses, equipment, hiring office space and IT support

I have attached the posters promoting the event in your area, for distribution amongst your contacts. If you would be able to promote this on your social channels also, we would be extremely grateful, some pre made posts below.
If I can help further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Best wishes, Claire
