Apply for a Start-Up or Innovator Visa

Startup Giants PLC is approved by the Home Office as an endorsing body for the UK Startup and Innovator Visa categories, enabling exceptionally talented non-EEA nationals to set up a high-growth business in the UK.

To qualify for a visa in either category, applicants must first apply for an endorsement letter. All applications via our website will be assessed for Innovation, Viability and Scalability.

As a Home Office approved Tier 1 Start-Up & Innovator Endorsing Body, Startup Giants is actively seeking innovative, scalable and commercially viable business proposals from motivated individuals and teams with exceptional business ideas that are ready to be developed in the UK market.

We look for cross-sector, high growth potential businesses that leverage technology in areas of SaaS, FinTech, AdTech, PropTech, Manufacturing, and Supply Chain.

If your business idea meets the Home Office requirements and we feel that Startup Giants would add value as an early stage partner, we will invite you to join our Venture Builder programme, provide expertise in technology and marketing to develop and grow your concept further, and support your growth through multiple funding rounds.

  • The Review Process

    Startup Giants accepts applications directly via this website and also through trusted third-party intermediaries (such as immigration lawyers). For any direct applications, Startup Giants will provide an initial review of the application via one of our expert resources that can ensure compliance to the Home Office rules.

    We aim to provide a decision in principle following the initial review, with a follow-up invitation to join our accelerator programme for successful applicants.

    Startup Giants may seek equity in any companies we are supporting with an endorsement.
