Innovate UK UKRI Unlocking Potential Award

In a world where innovation often serves as a buzzword, UKRI’s Unlocking Potential Award celebrates the progress UK startups make in addressing society’s most pressing challenges. Recently, Innovate UK’s prestigious UKRI Unlocking Potential Award granted Gena recognition, affirming our commitment to improving the lives and outcomes of rare cancer patients.

Specifically, over 2,100 businesses from across the UK applied, but only 233 projects received funding, business support packages, and personalised coaching and mentorship. Innovate UK awarded a combined £6.2 million in grants to this diverse group of innovators, fostering a culture of purpose-driven innovation that promises to reshape industries and transform lives.

We join a remarkable group of individuals and companies harnessing technology and creativity to drive positive economic and societal change.

From developing sustainable alternatives to traditional construction materials to revolutionising healthcare with AI-powered diagnostic tools, these innovators represent the forefront of progress in the UK.

The Innovate UK UKRI Unlocking Potential Award offers more than financial support; it validates our vision and marks the beginning of our journey to improve outcomes for rare cancer patients.
