The Pioneer 10 story

Pioneers explore new, innovative ways of thinking and doing. Forming, developing and growing a business requires investment in leading talent, resources and planning – just as pioneering in space does.

The US space probe Pioneer 10, famous for completing the first mission to Jupiter, inspired a new generation of possibilities. The programme pushed boundaries and explored new opportunities for humankind. This is our inspiration for stirring innovation and passion in the commercial world.

How does it work?

You can access online tools and advice at any time by joining the Pioneer 10 community. Our workshops start in January and continue until July.

We then begin our search for the 10 top innovators in Stockport. Pioneers are invited to join an intensive growth programme that offers tools, coaching and support. The final stage of the programme involves Pioneers pitching to business leaders who determine the business with the most potential who are recognised with business support packages worth approximately £15,000.

Applications are now closed but you can still access tools and join our business community.
