LCRIG launch funded places in new Start-Up Zone

The Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) has announced an exciting new addition to the Innovation & Learning Festival in July: The LCRIG Start-Up Zone. This opportunity is designed to provide opportunities for small and emerging businesses to showcase their innovative solutions and pioneering technologies.

The Start-Up Zone will provide funded places for eligible small businesses and start-ups to demonstrate their cutting-edge products and solutions. This initiative aligns with LCRIG’s commitment as a Community Interest Company (CIC) to give back to the highways community and support collaboration and innovation across the sector.

In 2023, LCRIG welcomed more than 600 delegates across the two days. With 230 representatives from 80 different highway authorities from across England, Scotland and Wales, as well as the Department for Transport (DfT), academia, industry associations, the supply chain and media.

To qualify for a space in the Start-Up Zone, applicants must:

• Have under 5 employees.
• Have been trading for 5 years or less.
• Have an annual turnover of less than £1.5 million.

It is anticipated that there will be a high demand for this opportunity, therefore interested Start-Ups are encouraged to apply promptly. The application process is straightforward, and LCRIG will notify successful applicants via email.

The deadline to apply for this opportunity is Monday 10 June 2024. Further information and the application form are available HERE.
