Why choose grant funding

  • A grant is a lump sum of money given to a business that doesn’t have to be paid back 
  • A grant can be a great option if you’re looking to grow your business, create a new product or scaling up quickly
  • Business grants are ideal for solving specific challenges such as funding for research and development, employing more people or helping with capital costs, such as upgrading equipment or facilities
  • You don’t have to give up equity in your business, unlike other forms of investment

The problem with grants

There is an overwhelming amount of information and schemes out there for businesses. Even when you’ve selected a fund or grant you want to apply for, the application is often inaccessible, time-consuming and requires a tonne of paperwork and man-hours. 

What can you do to get ahead?

If you work with us, we help you choose the right grant for your business and give you access to our unique, technology-driven platform that streamlines the application process and makes it simpler and more efficient to apply for grants. We’ll save you time and boost your chances of success.

How does the technology work?

The Grantify platform shows you how to write the application by breaking down the complex process into short simple questions, providing extensive guidance and model answers from winning applications. Our dedicated support team is on hand to help throughout as well.

Grantify’s technology then builds an application from your answers, allocating it to industry experts for review. They conduct multiple rounds of proofreading and editing to improve your application.

The Grantify platform was fantastic! The platform provides a great method of breaking down what Innovate is expecting as answers. It also gives fantastic examples to detail how to write accurate and well-worded answers

Does the platform really work?

You’re 7x more likely to be successful when you apply with us, versus applying alone. In fact, a previous Innovate funding round was recently published in 2021 and 62% of ALL winners were our clients – it’s that good.

What do I do to get started?

Pick a grant/opportunity from the top of the page and take an eligibility quiz. If you qualify, you can schedule a quick consultation with one of our account managers and we’ll discuss your options. If you don’t qualify for any of the above, do check back in regularly as we’re always looking for new opportunities for our valued clients.
