Scope

Entries to the IET Start-up Innovation Award are welcomed from engineering start-ups which can demonstrate that they have solved a worthwhile problem and achieved early commercial traction.

We want to hear about the problem that you have addressed the technical novelty and innovation of your solution, and how this will significantly change the world for the better.

The judges particularly want to see evidence that you have got beyond the “idea” stage and have evidence demonstrating that the rest of the world sees value in what you are doing.

Who can enter the Start-up category?

For this competition the key criteria are that the company:

  • Thinks of itself as a start-up
  • Is pursuing a business model which should be highly scalable, i.e. to grow fast
  • Is disruptive of the status-quo
  • Is still developing very rapidly - and probably its market is too
  • Is less than five years from inception
  • May or may not be profitable
