If you're establishing a new business, you'll need to demonstrate to your endorsing body that you have adequate funding and provide information about its source.

Duration and Progress Assessment:
With the Innovator Founder Visa, you can stay in the UK for up to 3 years. During this period, you'll need to meet with your endorsing body after 12 months and 24 months to showcase the progress you've made with your business.
