We expect to receive a high demand for the programme from startups and scaleups, we can only allow up to 20 teams to join the first phase of prototyping. Placement on the programme is based on a clear down selection process and criteria (please see open call section). We unfortunately cannot accept all the great ideas that come through. If you are not successful you will not be able to take part in the programme but may find another Digital Catapult programme, of relevance. Check our website for all our programmes.
