The Audience of the Future (AotF) Investor Accelerator aims to provide the runway for later stage capital and equity investment beyond grant funding and enable early stage companies to get direct access to the commercial acumen and market access opportunities that equity investors provide.
Up to £2m of grant funding and a comparable amount of private investment is available to support business led R&D and to invest in companies in the creative industries that have real potential for growth through:
The competition recognises the potential value of creative companies who are also driving innovation through the use of immersive technologies in other industries within the B2B and B2C market places.
The programme aims to provide the runway for later stage capital and equity investment beyond grant funding, introduces new investors to the growing UK Immersive tech market place and supports existing sector investors to investors to invest earlier in R&D.
These events are designed to give investors the chance to meet the teams behind the programme for Audience of the Future Challenge, Innovate UK and Immerse UK and have an opportunity to have 1-2-1 meetings and explore the opportunity in more detail.
Please note that these events are relevant for investors potentially applying as part of stage 1 of the competition.
