Hero of the month - Nigel Walker Innovate UK

Nigel is responsible for Access to Finance at Innovate UK where he heads the organisation’s support for innovative SMEs in gaining access to business support and private sector funding to accelerate the journey from concept to commercialisation. Through his and others at Innovate UK he has enabled £ms of funding to our best technology companies via grants and matched funding.

Nigel is not the sort of character who pushes himself to the front of the stage, but deserves praise for the very worthwhile work he has been undertaking in recent years.  He is a thoughtful fellow and genuinely wants to ensure that government money is directed to the best sources.  The fact that so many firms now approach Innovate UK for funding is testament to his hard work over the years.  What is interesting about Nigel is that he is also receptive to ideas and arguments and one gets a sense that he absorbs them and will endeavour to work them into Innovate UK's strategy in the future.  

We wish him well in his future career.
