Partnership between MSH & Innovate UK
The CEOs/Heads of these MSH supported incubation centres to undergo an intensive training programme in the UK on how to run a successful incubator and in the process, strengthening their connections to the UK’s innovation ecosystem. A particular focus area for this programme will be on incubating impact-driven start-ups.
A cohort of 10-15 MSH supported Indian start-ups would come to the UK for an incubation programme of approximately 3 months at an incubator Innovate UK will have selected through open competition. As part of the programme, they will be encouraged and supported to build collaborations with UK organisations with whom they can then deploy their new solutions across the developing world. Workshops and events will be run to facilitate introductions.
