Tech Nation will not be endorsing applications under the Start-up and Innovator visa routes.
This means that we will not begin operating these routes from April as previously announced. We apologise that we have been unable to provide this update sooner and for any inconvenience caused, we appreciate that anyone who has been waiting for Tech Nation will be disappointed by this news.
Following the recent expansion of the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa under the new Global Talent route, and in preparation for the route being extended further to EU nationals from January 2021, Tech Nation has decided to focus resources on continuing to successfully operate this expanded route.
You can find more information for Startup or Innovator visas, including other endorsing bodies, using the links below.
Alternatively, if you are a tech founder, senior executive or employee and considered as a leader or potential leader in your field, then you may wish to consider the Global Talent route.
Tech Nation may review the Startup & Innovator routes again in the future.
