InnovationRCA celebrates 50 successful start-up companies

Royal College of ArtInnovationRCA, the Royal College of Arts’ centre for enterprise and entrepreneurship, has reached a significant milestone helping 82 graduates launch more than 50 spinouts. 

These companies range from one producing a vegan leather alternative made from pineapple leaves, to making clothes that expand as children grow, as well as another company producing concrete material available in a roll. Collectively these 50 companies have created more than 650 UK jobs and generated more than £87 million turnover in the last 10 years. 

A number of InnovationRCA’s companies have either achieved the status of scale-up or are very close to achieving this. To help these companies reach the next level and create successful and sustainable British companies, InnovationRCA has launched a new First50 Scale-Up program, which will pair InnovationRCA entrepreneurs with senior executives from industry to foster future heavyweight talent in innovation and disruption. 

InnovationRCA Director, Dr Nadia Danhash, says, ”The First50 Scale-Up program is about so much more than celebrating the achievements of our graduate companies. It’s about recognising their potential to scale to even greater heights, create more jobs and exports, improve more people's lives and change the world we live in. We've been with them from day one, and we will continue to stand with them shoulder to shoulder and support them with this new scale-up program.”
