There has never been a better time to secure funding, scale your idea and bring your ambitions to life.
Funding is currently unparalleled: Innovate UK has given away £2.5B in grants, the EU has allocated almost €100B in grants over the next 7 years, Arts Council England has funded over 600,000 projects and VC investment across the UK and Europe has never been stronger. Despite this, a tiny fraction of eligible companies apply for the funding they deserve.
Grantify, formed in 2019, started by revolutionising grant funding, following their founders securing two six-figure grants for another business. Whilst the money was life-changing for a business that had only registered on companies house a few months prior – and grants are the only non-equity, non-repayment finance option – the process was opaque, confusing, took several months and required the assistance of myriad freelancers and experts.
Grantify knew there could be a better way. Using a first-of-class AI-enabled tech platform including instructional videos by experts and model answers written by winners, Grantify breaks complex application processes into a multitude of small, easy steps and creates applications for Innovate UK, R&D Tax Credits, Horizon Europe, Arts Council England and multiple other funders in a fraction of the time. Incorporating the anonymised data of hundreds of prior applications, Grantify’s platforms can react dynamically to changes in market conditions, assessor feedback and countless other factors. All applicants also receive a call with a specialist, round-the-clock support from our helpdesk of experts and triple-check reviews.
Instead of 8 weeks like it took our founders on their successful attempt, our applicants are routinely submitting after 3-5 days of work using Grantify’s approach.
Since revolutionising the UK and EU grant funding landscape using tech, raising over £50m in funds for our clients over a 12 month period and being featured in the Guardian and Telegraph newspapers, Grantify is now a fully-fledged incubator for helping businesses and creative ideas find funding, scale and bring their ambitions to life.
