GrowthAccelerator is a Government backed programme aimed at enabling SMEs to achieve their potential, providing grants and on-going advice from leading business growth specialists. GrowthAccelerator provides access to tailored business advice as well as access to innovation specialists who aim to guide the SME in building a culture of innovation. As part of that guidance, the SME will learn to commercialise ideas, develop an innovation strategy and generate profitable intellectual property.
In addition, the SME is provided with access to funding, such as an IP audit grant of up to £3,000 from the UK Intellectual Property Office. The IP audit grant can enable the SME to determine what intellectual property has already been generated within the company, and what rights their competitors might have. SMEs invariably underestimate the quantity and quality of their intellectual property and an IP audit can bring that out, and enable the SME to seek protection for what is an ever more valuable asset.
