Find the right funding source for you

Funding & Investment

Securing funding is one of the ways that we can help your business to scale-up and expand. Our funding team have years of experience working closely with various regional, national and international funding organisations, and will work to secure you that injection of capital to help your business grow and prosper.

We are also launching a new Business Angels programme in partnership with the University of Sussex, which will provide opportunities for alumni, staff and members of the Sussex Innovation community to pitch for seed funding.

Mentors, Grant Applications and Investor Readiness

If you’re looking to raise funds, our experience and introductions to trusted contacts and networks ensure that you have all you need to make the right decision. We encourage collaboration between early-stage companies and potential investors to reduce the stress of the pitching experience. Our community of investors are motivated to provide entrepreneurs with insight and feedback as to how they can shape their businesses to become more investable in the future.

“At the early stage of our business, the £5,000 IP grant we received through Sussex Innovation enabled us to get our prototype of the technology tested and form the outline for patent protection. Through the grant we were also able to benefit from the expertise of David Porter, who has helped and guided us to write our application for an Innovate UK Smart Grant. Without that support, our chances of success in the competition would have been seriously reduced.”
