Once our funding options were narrowed down, DRIAD helped us to formulate our business case accompanying applications, and the whole process of writing a grant with their help, allowing us to focus more on the business specifics.
When the health crisis hit, ActiveCell pivoted to respond to COVID-19, and DRIAD’s support in highlighting new funding possibilities in line with our new direction was crucial. Thanks to their tireless support, we won the COVID-19 response competition, a £50k grant covering 100% of the costs of a 6-month project, and were able to maintain focus on the project throughout the year.
DRIAD´s expertise was crucial in the success of our application. We managed to secure a large Innovate UK grant and are now able to develop something totally new to the market – enabling us to take steps towards our big vision.
DRIAD gave valuable advice regarding the focus, scope, budgeting and structuring the project. They did not only help us write the document, but the process we went through with them helped us to create a solid project strategy.
DRIAD helped us take our innovative software idea and turn into a straightforward plan that met the Innovate UK competition application criteria. This was particularly useful when designing the work packages and associated costs.
DRIAD took a lot of time and trouble writing a solid application for an Innovate UK Smart Grant competition. We had neither the time nor expertise in-house to put together such a detailed submission document.
