Access to Finance | Funding for Your Business

Andrew Clark

At Enterprise Europe Network, we can help you make sense of the hundreds of different funding opportunities available for your business.


Without knowing what’s available, it’s easy to let these pass you by. But, we’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen - allowing you to propel forward.


If you’d like access to finance for your business, there are a number of options available to you.


What Do We Do?

EEN can advise you on the most appropriate funding and finance sources such as:


  • Grants (R&D Funding)
  • Equity investment
  • Loans
  • R&D tax credits


We can also help you shape your business plan and put you in touch with the right grant funder, investors, business angels, venture capitalists, financial institutions and banks. 


As well as this, EEN can help you access publicly funded support from regional, national and European programmes.


R&D Funding (Grants)

Research and Development (R&D) funding is important for companies that are developing new innovative products, services or technologies. 


This type of funding is essential for seed and early stage companies that are undertaking feasibility studies, prototype development and testing.  


The main sources of R&D funding come from government grants which support companies to test and de risk ideas without the requirement for repayment.


EEN can support your business to identify the right R&D grant funding opportunities and navigate your way through the application process.  


Investment Funding

There are various types of investment open to companies from angel, venture capital and private equity.  


EEN can support you to identify the right type of investment for your business and help develop your pitch deck, review business plans and financial forecasts. 


Business Growth Fund 

Allowing a business to grow is key to its long-term success. Often this requires an injection of funding. EEN can help you find new routes to get to this.


SME Funding - Business Support in Your Sector

We have a number of business partnership opportunities available, across a wide variety of sectors.


Raising finance can be tough, however there are many companies looking to collaborate.


The benefits of collaboration are numerous, helping you drive your business forwards. This could be widening your network or providing you with access to new technologies.

EEN helped Conigital secure its first Innovate UK funding bid, then went on to help the company form key relationships in the connected and autonomous vehicles market.
