Avoid Cash Flow Issues

What Is Grant Advance Funding?

Innovation grants, like those provided by Innovate UK and the European Union, are an excellent way to finance R&D. However, with grants paid retrospectively, many businesses face cash flow issues when financing the initial stages of their project. Grant Advance Funding from Rocking Horse solves this problem – we can provide you with 80% of your grant amount up to two quarters in advance. Through leveraging this advance it allows businesses to complete grant milestones, retain equity, and maintain project timelines.

    Loan is Repaid

    Our loan is repaid at the end of each quarter once the grant provider has processed your grant spend claim and the loan is repaid with the proceeds. We can roll the funding over and add to the facility quarterly so you can access funding throughout the duration of the grant as and when you require it.
