Innovate UK EDGE is a service of Innovate UK (part of UKRI) and is delivered by a consortium of organisations. Our innovation and growth specialists are at the heart of our offer. Each high-potential, innovative business in our portfolio benefits from the objective perspective of a dedicated innovation and growth specialist.
Our specialist considers a business in the round and, working closely with its leadership, identifies the most productive ways to accelerate its growth. Our specialists can draw on resources such as our programmes, events, innovation & international networks and their domain expert colleagues. For some businesses, our resources, such as investment readiness programme Pitchfest and the Global Business Innovation Programme, will also be a gateway to our bespoke, specialist-led support.
Note: Until December 31st 2020 the majority of Innovate UK’s business growth support was delivered under the label Enterprise Europe Network (EEN).
