Where do good projects fail?
We’ve talked to amazing businesses with incredible smart innovations, who have lost out on Innovate UK Smart Grants due to exam board “requirements”. This happens because they’re experts on their projects, not professional writers or researchers. Without a proven and tested process, applications get rejected. Traditional grant consultancies don’t guarantee Smart Grant funding for your research and development, making you jump through hoops like: – Long, open-ended instructional PDFs – Endless, vague suggestions for change – Writing it all yourself from nothing You can avoid all of this when you apply for Innovate UK funding with Grantify.
