Funding methods

There are several funding methods as follows:

  1. Free money – grants that cover the whole amount of your project’s budget and you don’t need to pay the money back.
  2. Royalty-based – in this method you get a grant to fund your project, and once you start making revenues (generated thanks for the grant that you received), you need to pay back a certain percentage of the revenues to your grant funder until you pay back the whole amount of the grant you received.
  3. Matching– some grants fund only a certain percentage of the budget that you need for your project. You need to make sure that you have other resources to fund the rest of the project’s budget. For example, your project’s budget is $2M. The grant’s funder funds 50% of the project, and you need to fund the other 50%.
  4. Mixed – both royalty-based and matching grants.


NDF consultants can assist in:

  • Matching Grants – see our Business Plans Development service
  • Royalty Based Grant – we provide on-going reports for royalty-based grants.
