Case Study – How Innovate UK and Early Metrics provided relief to SMEs affected by COVID-19

By Anais Masetti - 01 July 2020

To accelerate loan application for SMEs affected by the coronavirus pandemic, Innovate UK partnered with Early Metrics.

 

As part of the Covid-19 support package provided by the UK government to SMEs, Innovate UK launched the Continuity Loan program which makes available £210 million in loans to Innovate UK award holders.

To provide this relief plan in a timely manner, several challenges had to be tackled:

  • Accelerate the application and candidate assessment process
  • Collect data in a single, intuitive platform
  • Enable fast yet accurate decision-making based on data and scoring
  • Provide a solution that can be integrated within existing systems
