Apply for funding


Getting Started

Applying for funding

We accept applications on a continuous basis, with no deadlines or ’rounds’ of funding. In addition to this open application window, we actively seek out investments. Our review process is highly selective and rigorous, and less than 10% of applicants are invited to submit full proposals.

The stages of your application

After having read and agreed to the important information surrounding our application process you will be ready to apply and redirected to our online portal. The initial application involves two parts.

First, you fill out an online application form with general information about your request for funding.

Second, you upload a short description of your innovation, which will be provided after completion of the online form.
