Grant Eligibility.

Helping you understand whether grants are for you, what you need to consider if they are, and your chances of success.

Demystifying what Assessors are looking for.

Grant funding comes from the taxpayer. So in order to be successful you need to be developing a cutting-edge technology or projects with a significant environmental, health or societal benefit. A great business idea isn’t always enough.

We’ll help position your project for the best chance of success, and we’re particularly interested in speaking to companies in the Agritech, Medtech, Biotech and IoT industries.

Does this sounds like you? Then please get in touch to discuss your project.
