Join us on Thursday 18 April for the Hydrogen Innovation Initiative’s (Hii) Venture Building Programme Application Support  Webinar. 

Connected Places Catapult and partners introduce the Venture Building Programme (VBP), the first in the UK which blends public and private assets, technology, talent and capital to form new super companies from synergetic consortiums/stacks to drive commercialisation in markets that face challenges in market readiness, lack of infrastructure, access to capital especially in the early stages.

In this webinar, attendees will:

  • Hear from our Venture Building Programme experts and understand how this has shaped a unique opportunity in Hydrogen Innovation Initiative (Hii).
  • Be presented a new market opportunity which can supercharge commercialisation and offer new access to funding in a tough economic market.
  • Be invited to apply their tech, talent and other assets to form a new venture, providing commercial contracts and opportunities for emerging applications
  • Be provided details on timeline, application and next steps

Successful applicants will stand the chance to be guided through the VBP by world class teams to secure commercial contracts to further their value creation, access to alternative funding mechanisms and investors, both public and private.

Applications will close on 26th April.

This webinar will take place on Zoom.

As an effort to accelerate the development and commercialisation of hydrogen-based technologies, Connected Places Catapult is excited to unveil the Hydrogen Innovation Initiative (Hii) Venture Building Programme.

As the industry powers onwards to Net Zero, the way we produce, use and store energy is changing. Our power, heating and transport systems must decarbonise if we are to achieve this target, and so a mix of low-carbon, renewable energy sources are needed.

The Hydrogen Innovation Initiative (HII) is a trusted group of organisations working with industry, government, and academia to create an investible, globally competitive hydrogen technology and services sector, here in the UK.

The mission is supporting UK industry to anchor high-value jobs, boost resilience and drive decarbonisation by accelerating the development of critical technologies and supply chains for the fast-growing hydrogen economy.
