Funded Projects

A selection of the funded projects we've supported since our launch in 2015.

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR PORTFOLIO OF FUNDED PROJECTS?

Since launching in 2015 we have run 6 rounds of funding of up to £25,000. To date we’ve received almost 1,000 applications from the length and breadth of the UK.

Each round of funding has been iterative based on the learning from the previous round. Initially offering direct grants of up to £25,000 to SMEs, we’ve since tailored our offering to suit those companies that need and can facilitate such direct funding support but also help those companies, of which there are many, that need more support in refining not only their creative projects but so too their business skills.

Each and every company that has been selected for support from UKGF has been awarded it based on merit. We take no ownership of IP, no equity or have any subjective views on creative concepts.

Some of the funded companies we’ve supported have provided project details to be included here.

Tranzfuser, our innovative annual talent development competition, has produced several
winning teams that have gone on to join our portfolio of funded projects.
