Grants

Helping you finance innovation and business growth

Grant funding helps businesses to thrive

Grants are a valuable source of Government support which accelerate ambition and realise vision for businesses across a wide range of sectors, helping start-ups to grow and established businesses to scale-up.

Since it does not need to be repaid, grant funding can significantly contribute to the company’s ongoing growth without having to part ways with any equity.
