Webinar: How to deploy non-dilutive funding options in 2024

Author: MPA
Published On: 20 February 2024

As you plan to scale, there’s a fundamental question to answer over whether to look at dilutive or non-dilutive funding options, with pros and cons to each. There’s also a way to build these options into your growth strategy – though many business owners don’t have access to the right advisors to guide them through this, consequently missing out on opportunities or making costly mistakes.

We’re hosting the second in our Building Financial Resilience webinar series to look at non-dilutive funding options and guide you on how to build these into your growth strategy for 2024/25.

Hosted by our Head of Grant Services, Dr Chloe Sharp, you’ll learn more about:

  • How to identify which grant is right for your business
  • How to build grants into your growth strategy
  • The role of tax credits and how to approach them, 6 months on from HMRC’s legislation changes

Chloe will also share case studies and highlight common mistakes made by business owners who may see non-dilutive funding options as ‘free money’, without appreciating the competitive nature of applying for this funding, and the clarity over strategy and positioning required.

You’ll also have the chance to ask Chloe any burning questions towards the end of this session.

Meet the experts:

Dr Chloe Sharp, Head of Grant Services

Chloe’s work in grants started in 2013, and her work in innovative product development followed soon after, in 2016. In the last decade, she has supported multiple startups, SMEs and scaleups in accessing over £10m in non-dilutive funding and understanding their market, users and customers.

Chloe takes an evidence-led, data-driven approach, summarised in her book ‘Make Products That Matter’ from working in product management and UX research within an AI start-up and providing research services.

She is a qualified ILM5 coach and founder of Sharp Insight.

She co-founded and exited in 2021, a successful grant writing and research consultancy based in Milton Keynes, when she then became a Grants Partner and then Acting Head of Grants at GrantTree.

Taking everything that she’s learned from heading up the business unit and running a grant consultancy, Chloe is now the Head of Grants at MPA, adding an exciting value proposition to offer clients and partners.
