You want good fundraising leads; we want to give you them. 

What are Innovation Grants?

A grant is a competition where businesses apply to be awarded money to invest into an innovative project. In most cases, public grants are match-funded where the awardee receives a portion of the grant and needs to fund the remaining amount. The amount you can be awarded varies from competition and providers. Each grant needs to be checked to understand how much you could apply for with typical grants ranging from £25,000 up to £2 million.

Our Process

Step 1. Grant Matching

We’re not ones wasting your time. Our first step is to book a discovery call before we engage with your business to conduct grant matchmaking. This ensures we can be confident that the chosen grant is the right fit for you.

Step 2. Grant Workshop

We’re hands-on in our approach, which means we want to understand your business and the way you do things. Our three to four hour workshop allows us to extract the information we need for your grant application.

Step 3. Workshop Summary

Pulling together a strategy, we can provide a recommended direction for your fundraising future. At this point, you’ll be given the opportunity to read and sign this off.

Step 4. Application Draft

Using the information we’ve collated, our team sets to work drafting your application. Taking away the time and administrative burden from you, allowing you to focus your time where it matters most – your business.

Step 5. Review & Amend

Working collaboratively, we will ask you to review and make amends to the application until all parties are satisfied.

Step 6. Submit the Application

Your application will be submitted by the competition deadline. If your application is unsuccessful, we make amends from the grant body’s feedback and will resubmit in the next round where applicable.
