Here's what our clients say

Sinead Kenny

CEO, DiaNia Technologies

I came to Cresco 3 weeks before the EU submission deadline with our previously rejected proposal. It was an absolute pleasure working with the team.

MD, Clever Sweets Ltd

If you are serious about winning a funding round and expect to succeed without the professional approach Cresco deliver, in my view you are being over-optimistic. And if you do win, the excellence of the preparation that goes into the bid becomes crucial. Your project will be built upon what you submit. As I complete Q1 of my successful project, I can firmly recommend Cresco. Their success rate tells you this decision is a no-brainer.

CEO, Bold Health

Cresco helped us tremendously to tap into the most fit grant opportunities for the type and stage of our business. We have worked together for over one-and-a-half years now on various applications, and we have been successful in securing Innovate UK funding. Cresco have also been involved in project management for this award project. The team have been great, supportive and kept us on top of deadlines and requirements. We wouldn't have been able to write such quality applications had it not been for Cresco.
