Opportunity to access non-dilutive funding for innovative companies

One of our longest-standing and trusted Ecosystem Partners, BourkeHood, operates in the R&D space which is an attractive alternative to access an undiluted source of funding, rewarding companies that incurred costs in product development, process improvements, and engaged in R&D in general. 
R&D Tax Credits remain an untapped source of alternative finance to capital raising as R&D is much broader than most people think; not just limited to clinical trials, lab tests, and application development, but also can be found across various sectors ranging from agriculture, construction, architecture, materials processing, and new product development.
