About this report

This is the first public report to show exactly how Innovate UK grants are used to support the growth of the UK's most innovative companies.

It examines a range of trends throughout Innovate UK's grant giving from 2011-2016, and assesses equity investment data to give a complete picture of how high-growth companies are funded.

It also examines how leading universities partner with these high-growth businesses and help secure grant funding.

Key findings

  • The University of Nottingham participated in the most successful Innovate UK funding applications
  • Companies that secure both grants and equity typically have a higher valuation
  • Russell Group universities secured almost double the funding of those outside the group
  • The North West saw the most grant funding outside of London and the South East
