Acceleration grants

The Acceleration Grants are smaller grants for our Education Incubator Fellows who have completed Incubation Grants (or Project Grants) that have demonstratable outputs and who want to continue the development of their project and scale their promising innovations. We would expect applicants to seek external and/or internal funding and our acceleration grant will be awarded as match funds, up to £5000.

The open call for these grants will be made live in September 2024.

What are we looking for?

  • Applicants have secured Incubation Grant funding previously;
  • The project has the potential to scale and be viable;
  • Demonstratable goal for long-term sustainability;
  • Applicants have secured funding through internal or external sources which we can potentially match fund.

What will the project team receive?

  • Sharing of the Experimentation and Innovation team grant network for known opportunities;
  • Mentorship within the Experimentation and Innovation team.
  • Network opportunities with Exeter Innovation.
