To help more young adults make their ideas a success, Innovate UK and The Prince’s Trust are launching a national campaign to find the next generation of UK innovators, and provide them with support, advice and funding.

The programme – Ideas mean business – is open to 18 to 30-year-olds from a range of backgrounds. Young adults with ideas to fix everyday problems, make changes in their community or tackle environmental issues are invited to take part.

A series of regional innovation events will run through January 2018 to help anyone interested to develop their ideas. The competition will then open in February 2018, with the award package being presented in March 2018.
