How we help

You’ve got great ideas and ambition to take the next step in business; we’ve got three match-funding schemes and expert advice to help you do just that. 

SparkFund is an innovation support and grants programme that will help you to improve or develop exciting new products, services or processes. If you’re a small to medium-sized business in the Humber, York, North Yorkshire region with aspirations to move forward, you’re in the right place.

We know that one size doesn’t fit all and we don’t try to make it work that way; the SparkFund Team will support you every step of the way, helping you to shape and frame your ideas, apply for the funding and deliver the project.


Funding Options

Innovation Vouchers - Innovation is about turning that idea into a solution that adds value to your business. See how Fit Mum's & Friends benefited from matched funding.

Research & Development Grants - R&D leads to new ideas, new information and new understanding that can be used to solve a problem. See how SG Technical Systems benefited from a R&D grant and support from the SparkFund team.

Low Carbon R&D Grant - A SparkFund low carbon grant could allow you to explore ways to reduce your carbon footprint. See how Fast Form Systems utilised their grant to benefit their business and the environment.


The best way to find out if SparkFund can help you is to get in touch. Our Innovation Managers can discuss your ambitions and there is no obligation for you to take anything forward.
