How do you bridge the gap between a groundbreaking innovation and a thriving business? 

Whether you’re an existing business changing the way you do things, or an innovator taking a new product or service to market, our Commercialisation programme can help you do just that.

We can provide support and advice on marketing, IP, grants and finance, sales strategies, business models and more.

We run regular free workshops, including:

Innovation Canvas

Support to find the strengths and weaknesses in your innovation concept, exploring your offer, opportunity and capability. Identify top challenges and decide actions to solve them.

Business Model Canvas

Marketing strategy

Grant clinics
