Good Application Guide

Guide which aims to support prospective grant applicants to submit high quality proposals, giving them the best chance of success.

How to apply for funding

Grant funding is often seen as “free money”, but that’s a misnomer – it is as free as securing a sale or equity investment. You need to put in effort into presenting the most compelling case that your grant application is a better option than all the other applications that are being assessed.

Many of the questions that are asked by the grant application process are similar to the questions that investors or potential customers might be asking about your opportunity. As well as funding important R&D work, securing grant funding can provide validation of your project by a third party. This can be useful in the investment process, to help investor confidence.

KTN’s Investment team have produced a useful guide on how to apply for funding.
