After working in the grants sectors for 6 years, CEO Adrian Spencer established GrantReady in 2006. Adrian knew there had to be more than a handful of grants, but there was no single source of information. Following meticulous research and 300 grants later, an online one-stop-shop was created – GrantGuru, to house and manage all the programs. It didn’t stop there, the number of programs continued to grow, with 1,500 programs for business and over 3,500 for community groups.
Providing the combination of grant finding with grant writing has been a huge success. To date GrantReady has secured over $500 million in grant funding and now advises government, business, not-for-profits, research agencies and the education sector. With a growing team of 12 and working nationally, the interest in grants continues to grow from all sectors.
The motivations driver for the team and the most satisfying part of this industry, is working with people and seeing their dreams and goals come through, by securing funding and delivery new, innovative or much needed projects.
