Launch of the Faraday Battery Challenge Investment Readiness Programme

24 January, 14:00 – 15:30 | Online

Last year Innovate UK and Innovate UK KTN ran the first Faraday Battery Challenge Investment Readiness Programme. It was so successful, with every single SME in the 2021 cohort seeing a positive outcome ranging from investment to partnership opportunities, that a second cohort will be put through their paces in a new 2022 Programme.

If you’re a UK-based SME in the electric vehicle battery sector and want to be a part of the Programme, attend the launch event to find out more. Just 15 SMEs will be selected and will learn to hone their pitch to investors and get a better understanding of the funding cycle.
