Clean Growth UK
In March 2019, Greentech South will launch Clean Growth UK, a national university-led business network that catalyses clean and green business innovation and growth. Clean Growth UK will be delivered across the UK through its three regional hubs: the University of Brighton’s Green Growth Platform, the University of Portsmouth’s Greentech South and Liverpool John Moores University.
Ambitious businesses with the potential to go big can qualify for Clean Growth UK’s innovation, commercialisation and investor readiness programmes, getting access to a support package tailored to their needs.
Bespoke packages can include university-business R&D partnerships, access to a personal business coach, a peer-to-peer business support programme, business masterclasses, investor pitch preparation support and investor introductions.
The network will also run innovation challenges, where large businesses, SMEs and universities come together to tackle industry-specific problems around the themes such as energy, waste and water.
