    If you qualify for this category, you can apply as an overseas entrepreneur, or switch from Startup, tier 2 general/ICT, Student visa or Visitor visa.

    The process involves two broad stages:

    • Business assessment (endorsing bodies)
    • Immigration requirements (Home Office)

    BUSINESS ASSESSMENT (ENDORSING BODIES)

    There are a number of organisations including incubators, accelerators, government agencies and business development organisations that have a proven track record of supporting UK entrepreneurs, and are appointed by the UK government as the endorsing bodies.

    These endorsing bodies will be responsible for issuing endorsements to the applicants by assessing their business venture, staying in touch with the applicant to monitor their progress and issuing further endorsements where relevant. Our expert team can advise you on the most appropriate endorsing bodies for your application. We are also the expert business plan writer and a trusted introducer to several endorsing bodies, ensuring eligible clients’ direct contact with investment panel members as well as transparent and timely decision-making.

    IMMIGRATION REQUIREMENTS (HOME OFFICE)

    Having successfully secured an endorsement, you will submit your Innovator visa application to the Home Office. At this stage, you need to submit your documents such as passport, fund maintenance, proof of English language, evidence of investment fund etc. in support of an Innovator visa application.

    OUR PROCESS

    Step 1: Pre-approval from an endorsing body

    Provide us with a brief executive summary of your business idea, outlining the innovative, viability, and scalability aspects of the proposal. We ensure a response from an endorsing body within 7-10 working days of receiving a copy of your executive summary.

    Step 2: Business plan writeup

    If your business concept is pre-approved, there is a strong plausibility to obtain an endorsement. At this stage, we will prepare a detailed business plan, bespoke to your idea and your background.  It will only take 2-3 weeks for a precise initial draft, followed by an additional 7-10 working days for any further amendments once you review the draft.

    Step 3: Formal endorsement application

    This is like a “mini” visa application that goes to the endorsing body for consideration.

    Here, we submit your passport, final business plan, evidence of funds, and evidence of English proficiency. The endorsing body will usually take 2 weeks days to process the application followed by an invite for a virtual interview.

    Step 4: Virtual interview

    We will prepare you for the interview which usually lasts for 45-60 minutes.

    Step 5: Offer and acceptance

    If the interview goes well, the endorsing body will issue the official endorsement letter, which is linked with the UK Home Office’s system
