Build It Awards

If you have an idea that you can’t test before you’ve developed a prototype, you can apply for up to £10,000 to develop one (e.g. an app, website, or physical prototype).

To win a Build It prize you need to undertake significant market research to show that your product has commercial potential and offers an innovative solution to a market need. We’ll also ask you to outline exactly how this money would help you to take your idea to the next stage (e.g. trials, manufacturing, or raising further finance).

How to apply

1) (Optional) Get feedback on your idea at an Enterprise Appointment (phone 020 7882 8533 to book).

2) Download an application form Build It application form 2017/18 [DOC 135KB] and submit it to, along with a 2-minute video pitch introducing your idea.
