“Crisis spawns Necessity. Necessity fuels Innovation”

How do companies find creative ways to continue fund their innovative projects? Our director, Vivien Badaut, was interviewed by Patricia Keating of Tech Manchester for the Fast Forward podcast. In this episode – Vivien offers insights on grant funding while referring to personal experiences and his pivot from academic research – to starting his own business: an innovation consultancy based in Leeds. During the discussion, Vivien and Patricia give entrepreneurs an insight and overview of what innovation grants can be used for, where to find them, how to apply for them, what the chances of success are, and what receiving a grant actually entails. It can be a daunting subject but hopefully this podcast will provide answers and dispel some of the common myths surrounding grant funding!
