Appleyard Lees Growth Fund

A fund supporting industries that are new to intellectual property (IP) and those developing a new business. The scheme is now open to life science, pharmaceutical and chemical companies in the UK and is designed to help them start-up, operate and protect their inventions.

The programme has an annual budget of £50,000 to award in grants to businesses. The level of individual allocations is at the discretion of the funder.

As well as offering assistance in creating and managing a portfolio, IP experts at Appleyard Lees also guide those successful in their application through the patent landscaping process and due diligence.
