R&D funding and support
As the saying goes, “it wouldn’t be called research if we knew what we were doing.” And sometimes you need a little help along the way...
At Golant Media Ventures, we are experienced in working in partnership with organisations through every stage of the R&D process, from designing the work through project delivery. We know that getting funding is about more than putting words on paper – it requires creating a vision and a realistic plan for implementation. Once your project is funded, we can provide the experience and skills you need to make it a success.
We can help you with...
- Identifying funding sources
- Getting the right mix of public, social impact and private funding
Developing the project
- Options for innovation and R&D that fit your organisational strategy
- Product proposition and functionality – and users’ experience of it
- Project methodology – research, development, design, testing, project plan, budget and spending profile
- Business model – intellectual property strategy, commercialisation plan, market scoping, routes to market, sustainability
- Partnerships, collaborations and filling skills gaps
Making the case
