Innovation Navigator programme | Chemicals Northwest
CNW News

If you know a Greater Manchester based business with an ongoing innovation project that needs some support to get it over the line, the fully-funded Innovation Navigator programme could be for them. 


GM Business Growth Hub’s new Innovation Navigator is specially designed to help businesses to accelerate commercialisation and profit from their innovations, faster.


We’re here to support businesses of all sizes who are investing in innovations in one of these areas: 

  • AI, data and advanced computing
  • Diagnostics and genomics
  • Sustainable advanced materials


With local experts based in each of the ten local authorities across Greater Manchester, the programme connects ambitious businesses like yours, with innovation specialists, researchers, universities, knowledge partners and private sector specialists. 


This support can help with everything from maximising value from IP, accessing funding and investment solutions for innovations, creating bespoke commercialisation plans, identifying new markets and more, helping businesses achieve faster commercial returns and value. 


And if the businesses you're working with are in the health innovation, clean growth, advanced manufacturing, or digital, creative and media sectors, this programme will be particularly beneficial and relevant for them.
