As 2021 draws to a close, we look back on what has been another busy year for RedKnight Consultancy. Here are some of our highlights:

We are particularly proud to have reached the £10 million milestone this year – meaning we have secured over £10 million of innovation grant funding for our clients! Not only this, but we have now submitted almost 200 proposals (between September 2015 and September 2021). Our average application score stands at 77.88%, with a success rate of over 38%.


This year, we’ve supported projects from a range of sectors, from medtech to advanced materials. This includes a successful application to Eureka Eurostars, securing €674,160 for the Free Space Optical Links for 5G networks (FrOLik) project. Impressively, FrOLik ranked 16th out of all 500 eligible applications to this call!

In more good news, RedKnight has been accepted onto the SETSquared framework, a collaboration between six universities that aims to engage more start-ups and SMEs with funding programmes. We look forward to starting in 2022.

We have also won several awards this year, including ‘Most Outstanding Grants and Funding Specialists 2021’ in the Global Business Insight Awards and “Start-Up Support Consultancy of the Year” in the Corporate LiveWire Global Awards.

Client Feedback

Above all, we are proud to have received lots of great feedback again this year – there is no better feeling than a happy client! Read some of our most recent testimonials below:

  • “The RedKnight team is a pleasure to work with. Throughout the grant application process, we felt very supported, and really appreciated the extra thought and attention to detail provided by the bid writer.”
  • “A professional and efficient team with an in-depth understanding of the Innovate UK application process.”
  • “Dayne and Hannah were excellent – they were responsive, clear, and really focused on us as clients. It was a great experience, and we’ll definitely use RedKnight again.”

We would like to say a huge thank you to all our clients for your support this year. We look forward to following your projects in 2022 and working with you again in the future!
