Celebrating Women in Innovation

When: March 5 2020

Where: London, United Kingdom


Launched in 2016, the Women in Innovation programme aims to get more women innovating in business.

The programme kicked off with research to build understanding of the challenges and opportunities for women innovators and a women-only competition with awards offering innovation grant funding and a tailored programme of mentoring and business support.

In 2018 Innovate UK confirmed ongoing commitment towards Women in Innovation and launched a second funding competition for awards and a new series of UK-wide events to raise awareness of opportunities, provide practical advice and inspire women to ‘build success’ in innovation.

The programme has been an overwhelming success– our awards holders are making a huge impact and we have discovered a whole new community of women innovators with amazing ideas. The number of women leading applications to Innovate UK has increased by 70%.

To coincide with a celebration of International Women’s Day, they will be hosting an event to share the success of the programme and celebrate their award winners, as well as unveiling our forthcoming plans.

Guests will enjoy an exclusive line-up of inspirational speakers and the chance to network with our empowering attendees. At the post event drinks reception guests will be invited to raise a toast to Women in Innovation.

The event will be held between 10am and 4pm, with a drinks reception until 5pm following.

This is an invitation only event.
