SME Support

The UK is renowned for its innovations and ability to solve engineering problems. It has a wealth of innovators with great ideas, which have the potential to solve the challenges within the automotive industry. We created the Technology Developer Accelerator Programme (TDAP to support bright ideas and help their inventors make a real impact.

Through TDAP, technology developers receive up to £100K of funding in return for their time spent developing their innovation. This isn’t the only support given though, although injecting cash to allow it technologies accelerate is important – the APC’s handpicked team of specialists also provide a wealth of knowledge and guidance. The team is able to assist in mapping a route to market in the automotive industry or elsewhere, make the connections within the automotive supply chain and providing business development support where needed.

It is a programme designed for technology developers, SMEs, and micro businesses with a spark. The phased programme supports technologies to ensure they reach their maximum potential and help to change the world.

The next round of TDAP will be open in Autumn 2018, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until then to talk to us. To find out more about how you can join the innovators already propelling their technology into market through TDAP, get in touch.
