Incubation of Design/Engineering Start ups
InnovationRCA provides early business support, funds and work space to students, graduates and startups founded by RCA and Imperial College graduates to help them protect and commercialise pioneering design-led technologies.
The support we offer includes:
- Fellowships and Commercialisation Support: Students and graduates can receive help with patenting commercial inventions before disclosure at their graduation exhibition 'Show RCA' and can win one of several funded fellowships at InnovationRCA to progress development and commercialisation of their work.
- Start-Up Incubation: Compelling graduate startup companies with design-led technologies are given business support and mentoring to help them get to market and transform into investible businesses.
- Launchpad Summer School : Our Entrepreneurs Launchpad provides master-classes and one-one coaching sessions with business startup experts over a two-month period, allowing students, graduates and teams of graduates with really early stage ideas to assess their commercial feasibility. Launchpad takes place in the highly charged InnovationRCA Incubator alongside fellows, startups, investors, and business experts.
