FloatWind manufactures mass-produced floating offshore wind turbines. It seeks to disrupt the £20 billion offshore wind energy market. The company argues that conventional offshore wind farms, installed at sea, use expensive and slow installation methods that are also dangerous to the marine environment. It further stresses that the high cost of installation is often borne by the consumer. FloatWind asserts that its business model is different. The company claims to build its products on land and then floats its ready-to-float turbines out to sea. The company points out that this reduces environmental damage, substantially reduces costs, and makes offshore wind energy cheaper. FloatWind was selected for a 6-month UK Innovate Edge business mentoring programme and appeared for SetSquared Business Mentoring Seminar in May 2021. The company has 3,000+ followers on LinkedIn. FloatWind states it will use the investment for product development, expanding its team, IP protection, promoting marketing and PR, and boosting its manufacturing capabilities.

Thermulon builds aerogels for building insulation and aspires to disrupt the global thermal building insulation market that was worth $30 billion in 2020. It claims that its aerogels are the first to beat the tradeoff between fire safety, thermal performance and price with the ability to fight climate and fire-safety emergencies. Thermulon cites its research with Ryder Architecture stating that using Thermulon's products on a new apartment block could save 100mm in insulation thickness compared to mineral wood and potentially add floor space equivalent to 7 additional 1-bed flats making safe insulation a profitable move for developers. The company was awarded £550,000 in InnovateUK equity-free grants, garnered a project to insulate 10,000 social houses over the next 5-10 years, and has been felicitated with awards from the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Royal Academy of Engineering. The company states it will use the investment to grow its team, file its first patent, certify its product and get Thermulon’s insulation on walls.

Crover intends to leverage the world's first proprietary method for locomotion in bulk solids. It argues that globally, 20% (60% in developing areas) of harvested grains are wasted during storage that led to almost 631 million tonnes of grains being wasted in 2018. Crover claims CROVER, its robotic grain monitoring device, can fluently “swim” in stored grains, monitor their conditions, reduce losses due to spoilage and avoid a drop in quality of these valuable crops. The company argues CROVER can provide hi-resolution readings across the storage unit and help hinder pest growth, allowing for early detection of potential spoilage. Crover was awarded £614,000 in grant funding including, £212,000 from Innovate UK. It has featured in publications such as The Times, Farmers Weekly, and Milling & Grain. They intend to use the investment to begin arranging and readying parties regarding new pilot programmes and begin small series manufacturing for these pilot schemes.

Carnot is developing hydrogen engines with key components manufactured from ceramics able to withstand fuel combustion temperatures, eliminating the need for cooling systems and doubling the efficiencies of modern engines. The company argues that modern engines waste on average one-third of fuel energy to cool systems that stop metallic components from melting. Carnot claims that its engines eliminate this waste doubling efficiency, halve fuel costs and CO2 and achieve net-zero operation by operating on biofuels and hydrogen benefiting the long haul transport, marine and primary off-grid power markets. Carnot has raised over £600,000 including a pre-seed round in 2020 for £357,000 at a pre-money valuation of £2 million, a £300,000 Innovate UK grant and another £300,000 Eureka Eurostar’s grant. Carnot has a 5-year, 3-phase exit strategy and will begin licensing its IP at the end of 2023 at which point it will begin generating revenue.
