About the programme

The UK Sirius Programme aims to bring some of the most exciting businesses and entrepreneurs from around the world to the UK.

The Programme offers a full support package to enable promising graduate entrepreneurs with new ideas that have real growth potential to maximise their chances of success.

Two cohorts will be selected to participate in the Programme each year. Applicants from all countries and all sectors can apply.  We are looking for teams, typically two to three members but we will consider larger groups. For more information on what we are looking for please visit here, read our FAQs and learn about some of the people who've been supported through the Pilot Programme.  

The Programme is run by a consortium of private companies and charities on a not for profit basis in partnership with the Department for International Trade (formerly UKTI).  For information on who's involved, please visit this page where you can access links to all the websites.
