We know that now more than ever businesses need funds to invest in their future. That's why we've partnered with the EU and British Government to bring you access to two grants tailored to give you the injection of supporting capital at a time when finances may be tight. Ground Floor cash grants are designed to help SMEs protect their intellectual property and fund new products and prototypes. We want to help you lay the foundation for growth out of lockdown.
