Innovation Grant Applications
new to grant funding and unsure where to start,
been unsuccessful with previous Innovate UK applications, or
simply don’t have the time to do the application yourself?
Let me help you win Innovate UK funding that will transform your business, enabling you to work with academic and industry leaders and attract other external investment.
It's never been tougher
The score that an application has to achieve to get funded has been steadily rising over the past few years. Brexit has turned people away from European funding calls and caused an increase in Innovate UK grant applications. Add in the COVID-19 pandemic, a shortage of alternative funding options and HM Treasury tasking Innovate UK with distributing £750M of additional innovation grants and loans, and the numbers of applications has snowballed.
Having someone on your team who knows what Innovate UK assessors are looking for in your application and the specific content to include in each answer has never been more important.
How we work with you
I work across all industry sectors and believe that this is one of my strengths. I take often complicated industry specific concepts and explain them in your application in a way in which a non technical person can understand.
I work with clients in three ways:
Writing your grant application for you
Coaching you through the application, you write the submission, I review as an assessor would and advise how to strengthen the application.
Reviewing an application that you have written as an assessor would and advising on how to strengthen the submission
I do not sell myself into the project as a project manager or a team member, so I have no hidden agendas and can be totally honest about your application.
I work on a fixed fee basis which is agreed at the start of the project. 50% of my fee is payable upfront to secure my time with the remainder due five days after submission.
