The project has been developed in response to a call from the government and the Tees Valley Unlimited Local Enterprise Partnership to increase the number of businesses which are innovation-active and to support them to overcome growth barriers and find markets for new or enhanced products or services.

The project has received up to £3.8m of funding from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.
