Commercial & design support to help bring innovative products to market
The Ebico Trust in partnership with Sustainable Ventures has launched the ‘Ignite with Ebico’ voucher scheme. Its aim is to support the development of affordable low-carbon home heating and energy efficiency solutions.
It’s tough to bring innovative low-carbon home warmth ideas to market when they’re focused on low-income households as investors focus on innovation servicing higher-wealth sectors of the domestic market. So, ‘Ignite with Ebico’ will provide tailored support packages to early-stage enterprises to help them overcome the barriers to growth.
The scheme aims to stimulate technological innovation amongst SMEs such that, ultimately, more affordable sustainable home warmth will be available to lower-income households.
The voucher scheme awards select innovators with £5-10K commercial or design support packages delivered by venture-building and innovation experts. At no cost to them.
The scheme provides support in six areas (find out more and apply) →
