Our journey

We are GrantTree. And we are here to make innovation easier.

We were founded back in 2010 by serial entrepreneurs Paulina Sygulska-Tenner and Daniel Tenner out of a desire to deliver tangible support to startups, tech companies and other innovators, and to improve the ecosystem of support for these companies.

In the years since we have raised millions for our clients, helping some amazing, groundbreaking businesses grow.

From startups through their journey to publicly listed industry leaders, we’ve ensured our community get access to the best non-dilutive funding that the UK has to offer.

The story doesn’t end here. We’re building something very exciting to take your funding journey to the next level. We cant wait to share it with you!
