Springboard’s startup grant 2024 is now open for entries.

As part of our mission to help improve people’s lives around the world we are offering a free project worth up to £20k to a winning startup company developing a promising new medical device or life science technology.

After a successful first allocation last year, we are reopening entries for projects to begin in Q3 2024. Entries should be received by 31 May 2024

What is the Grant?

Springboard are looking to support a winning startup company with a promising new medical device or life science product.

Especially for startups, we often see that runways and timelines do not allow companies to spend enough time at the concept design phase to ensure they are making the right decision for the long term, ultimately hurting their chances of success.

The winning startup will receive a project from our experienced team worth up to £20k, to support them with concept development work and planning.
