About this event
In the next in the series of Innovation Grant Mentoring webinars, project mentor’s Deepak Gupta and Paul Walland from Black Kite Consultancy, will talk participants through what it takes to prepare and submit a winning innovation funding bid.
Part of the challenge with innovation funding is to select a funding competition, and how you work out which funding pot is most appropriate to your innovation idea. Deepak and Paul will guide you through this process with plenty of dos and don’ts to consider.
Secondly, Deepak and Paul will talk participants through the questions that Innovate UK asks, and how you should best approach them when writing your bid.
Deepak and Paul will take questions at the end of the webinar.
