InnovationRCA Shortlisted for Accelerator of the Year

The Royal College of Art is delighted to announce that InnovationRCA has been shortlisted for Accelerator of the Year at the UKBAA Angel Investment Awards 2019.

This Award recognises the Accelerator that has demonstrated the most dynamic and innovative programme of support for their cohort of start up and early stage entrepreneurs during the past year and that has significantly increased their potential for achieving high growth and access to investment.

The awards will be held at Illuminate at the Science Museum in London on Tuesday 2 July. This event will recognise the fastest growing brands and acknowledge the founders, angels, crowd funders and early-stage venture capital investors behind them.

The nomination follows a recent speech by the Science Minister, Chris Skidmore about the importance of humanities to society. He said, ‘Most recently, I’ve seen one of the UK’s most successful institution-led business incubators – which is not at a scientific or large research-intensive university as you might expect. But is actually to be found at the Royal College of Art, where it is nurturing high-value businesses and attracting worldwide investment.’
