Recently the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) was given money by the UK Government to distribute to technology and innovate startups. This drew a lot of interest and some controversy when it was announced. The grants can be up to £100,000.00 and there are a number of rules and ways companies can apply for them. Techcrunch has a good writeup and you can apply and ready about the grants at InnovateUK.org.uk
For those who are interested to learn more about the grants, want to practice pitching, or just want to hang out with startups you may want to visit Flagons Den on Tuesday the 17th of May at the Innovation Warehouse near Smithfield Market/Clerkenwell. It’s free and includes some drinks and nibbles.
