Grant funding can play a vital role in the growth and prosperity of SMEs, but many businesses find that the funding is often challenging to obtain.

Local SMEs can gain an insight into making successful grant funding applications at Innovate UK’s ‘How to win funds and influence people’ workshop, being held between 9am – 1.30pm on Friday 9 March at Tramshed Tech, Cardiff.

The half-day masterclass will provide information on how to transform great ideas into well-presented, compelling funding applications.

Delivered by innovation experts and featuring local businesses that have successfully applied for Innovate UK funding, the event will explore the characteristics of good and poor quality grant proposals, with practical advice on the most effective approaches to application questions.
