Funding creative technology product and prototype development is one of the key opportunities available for businesses through MyWorld as we create a low-risk environment for innovation.
Our open funding calls led by MyWorld innovation partners Watershed and Digital Catapult, allow businesses to address their own challenges, specific industry challenges, and to take creative risks within a carefully curated community, providing individuals and companies with space, money and time to work on their most exciting ideas.
The complementary skills of the two MyWorld partners who lead our creative technology funding calls, mean that everyone from freelancers to scale-ups can access the support, knowledge, facilities and funding to conduct product and prototype R&D with greatly lowered risk.
