We know your pain

  • Applying for research grants is one of the most daunting and time-consuming tasks
  • You need not only the well-crafted proposal, but also knowledge of how each funder evaluates them.
  • And most (up to 11 out of 12) are unsuccessful, requiring you start over again.

How we fix it


4 weeks and we’re done

Gone are the days of spending months and months preparing the grant application. Our experts help you get done in one - letting you get back to the bench.


Stay on track

Your personal account manager works with you and the grant experts, looking after the boring stuff and making sure we stick to schedules.


Say ‘yes!’ more often

That feeling when you get the email saying you've been successful with your grant application? You better get used to that a lot more from now on.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about the grant experts? Who are they?

The grant experts are people who are either multiple successful applicants, reviewers, or former employees of grant awarding bodies. They work with in-house grant writers and project managers to get your application into shape in record time.

Which subject areas do you support?

We are starting with support for biomedical and health-related projects. We also consider physical science and enginerring projects, and eventually will cover all subjects.

Which funders do you support?

NIH, NSF, ERC, UKRI, NSERC, CIHR - and others on request.

Do you guarantee success?

We can't guarantee success, as all grant applications are subject to the whims of reviewers and councils at each funding body. However, we do bring insights to the review process for each funder and have in-depth knowledge of what makes an application successful in recent years, improving your chances of success and decreasing the time required to complete the application.
