Idea Factory

Everything begins with an idea...

Idea Factory is King’s flagship early-stage idea generation competition, taking ideas from ‘light bulb’ moment, to potential viable business. 

Do you have a problem you’re passionate about solving? And the inkling of an idea of how to solve it? Idea Factory could be for you!

Idea Factory will return later this year. There are lots of ways you can continue to work on your idea, before the competition reopens for applications:


Winners of Idea Factory get a share of £8,000 funding to develop their idea, access to 1:1 mentoring with the EI's Head of Entrepreneurial Skills, Head of Ventures or Experts-in-Residence, and desk space in the EI hub.
