🏆 We think grants are great 🏆
But they aren’t suitable for every project or every business.
As much as we would like to help every project we encounter, we are limited to by the funding available and the strict requirements of the schemes we look at. The minimum project size we currently consider is £150k.
Grant funding is generally only available for the development for cutting-edge technology or projects with a significant environmental, health or societal benefit. Before deciding to apply, there are six things to consider;
💡 Innovation 💡
How is the project technologically innovative? How does it represent a step-change to what is currently on the market?
What is the wider economic, environmental, health or societal benefit of your project? Why should the UK GOV fund you?
Wanting to start immediately? The approval process can take 6-9 months to complete and projects aren’t allowed to start until completed.
💰 Match Funding 💰
Funding is paid in arrears so every project needs to have investment in place to cover both the non-grant element and first 5-months development work.
The majority of schemes require you to work in partnership to deliver a project. This could be a University research partner or external testing with an end-user SME.
State Aid Rules
SMEs can be prevented from receiving funding when a limited company of more than 3 years old has lost more than half of its subscribed share capital as a result of accumulated losses.
So if your trying to saving the planet, clean up our oceans, secure our food supply, or developing a technology to make the world a better place then please fill in the Grant Eligibility Questionnaire below and we will be in touch
The application is of outstanding quality, particularly in terms of market awareness. The technical risks are sufficiently high to require risk sharing with government. An outstanding case is made for £349k government funding.IUK Assessor - Immersive Content call

Professional approach throughout, with exceptional communication and we would highly recommend for any business looking at various routes of Grant Funding. Big THANK YOU.

Mark is a fantastic grant writer and really supported us through the process. We have had a 2 / 3 success rate so far. Even after the application was completed, he then helped us through the process to secure it. He is also very good at working independently with limited information (!). Couldn't recommend him highly enough.

- Working with Tatton to secure £100k+ on such a complex project is like working with a partner, which is how it should be.
