A fully funded programme of support to help your South London based business or third sector organisation grow & develop. (applications close on 10th April)

Why innovation?

The world around us is constantly changing. The continued fast pace of technological development and disruptive global events, mean that for a business to remain relevant and profitable, it will need adapt and change over time.  Innovation is key for a business to maintain a competitive edge, at its core innovation is about doing things differently from your competitors.

Innovation doesn’t always mean disrupting a whole industry, it can be small changes such as evolving your internal processes or workflows, rethinking your business model, or tweaking your product range. Whatever the size of your start-up, SME or third sector organisation – innovation is relevant to you.

To help you adopt and embed an innovative approach within your business, tap into this fully funded programme of support, available exclusively to organisations based in South London.

The Institute of Cancer Research has collaborated with BIG South London to deliver a special cohort of the Innovation Support Programme hosted by The London Cancer Hub and aimed at life sciences businesses. The programme brings together the world-class knowledge, expertise and facilities of universities and colleges for the benefit and economic recovery of South London based businesses and communities.

Applications are now open for the Cohort 2 of the BIG Innovation Support Programme, which will run from 18 April – 17 June.

This cohort of the Innovation Support Programme is funded by The Institute of Cancer Research and The London Borough of Sutton and is delivered by London South Bank University in partnership with Kingston University and St Mary’s University, and with the support of Merton Chamber of Commerce, Kingston Chamber of Commerce, Richmond Chamber of Commerce and South East London Chamber of Commerce.
