For small & medium businesses looking for funding, have you thought about applying for an InnovateUK Smart Grant? 70% of your total project costs can be claimed as a Grant, with the other 30% coming from you, either as cash or investor match-funding. Funding is also GBER https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/state-aid-general-block-exemption-regulation & not De Minimis State Aid https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/443686/BIS-15-417-state-aid-the-basics-guide.pdf so the Eur200,000 over last 3 years De Minimis rule doesn't apply.

See the below links for more details on the upcoming two rounds.
