On 20 April 2020, the UK Treasury announced a support package aimed at helping start-ups whose businesses are facing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Future Fund” is being created, pursuant to which the government will offer convertible bridging loans of £125,000 - £5 million to eligible high-growth companies, provided the government investment is matched by private money. The total size of the government’s initial commitment to Future Fund is £250 million. It will initially be open from May until the end of September, and the scale of the fund will be kept under review. In addition, £750 million is being added to the existing Innovate UK program, which is a scheme providing grants and loans to small and medium-sized firms focused on R&D.
