1. Do I have to move all of my operations to the UK?
No, this is not mandatory. Many GEP companies still have ongoing operations or R&D in their country of origin.
2. Is the programme free?
Yes, however we expect a commitment to growth in the UK and one co-founder should relocate to the UK and reside here for most of the year.
3. How long does the process take?
It can take anywhere between 3 - 9 months, typically.
4. Do you provide a Visa?
We can endorse for the Innovator Founder Visa, for founders on our programme. This gives the founders and eligible family members the right to stay in the UK for 3 years.
5. Are there additional incentives?
Yes, there are many supportive incentives for entrepreneurs once in the UK including tax incentives for investors such as S/EIS and R&D.
