Im not sure if this was the place to put?

This was advertised at work-

Innovate UK has up to £200,000 and a package of tailored support to award to businesswomen who have exciting ideas and the potential to become leaders in innovation and deliver significant economic growth.

This is the first women only Innovate UK competition and is part of a new ‘infocus’ initiative to encourage diversity in innovation.

Each of the 12 finalists in the competition will receive a package of support tailored to their needs, and the four winners will each receive £50,000 to support their innovation project or activities.

Maybe I'm too cynical, but I wonder how many of the winners will be trans"women".

Innovate UK is well established and this is a good initiative. No need to be cynical just yet, VV!
