“Igor Chigrin and one of his Team / Partners, Vivian, have been invaluable. They worked with me and my organization, evaluated our needs, worked out a plan and immediately got to work. I am taken back by their fantastic work and the content they put out is extremely detailed and backed by solid review. We are proud to say that the first grant was approved and we know that the rest will be as well. Thank you Igor and Vivian! We will continue to work with you for the long-term!”

“We were looking for financing to purchase our first CNC machine, which we needed to increase our capability to manufacture parts faster and with greater precision. At the time, we didn’t think we were eligible for grant funding. But Igor Chigrin’s group showed us the way. They identified several available grants and loans that we could qualify for, and helped us to understand the programs’ details and requirements. As a result, we were able to purchase and install the equipment we needed. They were great to have working with us!”

“Fair Grant Writing’s team not only helped us identify the applicable grants, but also took care of all the paperwork. As a result, we received the requested amount from the Government, upgraded our equipment, went to several trade shows, and considerably improved our productivity. Thank you, guys!”

“We operate in a highly competitive niche market. To remain a strong competitor and grow our business, we decided to purchase a linear machining center and partially fund it with grant money.  But we were concerned that the amount of paperwork required to obtain the grant would be a significant administrative burden. Thank goodness we found Fair Grant Writing.  Igor and his team took over the entire application process. They completed the application and other required documentation in a timely and professional manner, and kept us posted throughout. They made the process quick and stress-free. We received the funding and installed the equipment. Grants work when you have the right team at your side!”

“To meet growing demand from our customers, we needed to purchase a brand new CNC machining center. We were aware of some Government grant programs. In fact, we had put together grant applications ourselves in the past, but now recalled how difficult and time-consuming the process was. This time, we hired Fair Grant Writing, and were amazed at how quickly they prepared the application.  As a result we brought the machining center into production within three months of submitting the application and substantially boosted our productivity.”

Industrial Automation, Midland, ON

“When selling into developing-world export markets, it is critical to be flexible and competitive on price. For this reason, we were looking to purchase a new horizontal machining center to improve our production efficiency and maintain competitive pricing. It was perfect timing when we found and hired Fair Grant Writing. They are experts in The Funding Portal and a member of CME (Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters), came with strong references, and charge no upfront fee.  Igor and his team led us through a very complex application process with very tight deadlines to deliver the documents complete and on time. We were very pleased with their performance. We got what we had expected!”

“The combination of our ambitious business growth plan, strong customer demand and competitive pressure drove us to invest in and execute a few very capital-intensive projects at the same time — including ERP system implementation;  the purchase of new equipment; exhibiting at an overseas trade show; and employee skills training, to name a few.  Our self-funding capabilities were limited, and borrowing from financial institutions was not an option. We clearly realized that we needed an alternative source of funding for as many of these projects as possible. So we took advantage of a money-saving retainer solution that Fair Grant Writing offered us to hire their experts to apply for multiple government grants and loans. This team of experts demonstrated a profound understanding of business planning, financing and technical writing. Within just six months they prepared the applications for five government grants — helping us to generate a significant amount of funding to invest in our projects. We recommend the retainer solution to all who need to maintain tight control of their finances. This arrangement is a really good deal that we keep recommending to our business partners!”

– Anthony Marcucci, President, Credible Upholstery, Furniture Manufacturing, Toronto, ON

“Our team of SR&ED consultants is very busy handling SR&ED claims for our clients. Every time clients asked us about government grants & loans we had to turn their requests down, just because we had neither capacity nor experience in writing for government grants. So it was great to meet Fair Grant Writing team one day. They took care of all our clients who wished to apply for government grants & loans applications writing. Our clients are happy with the level of personal commitment of Fair Grant Writing team and the results. In the recent case they brought our client in chemicals industry $100,000 grant for purchasing equipment. Our clients appreciate FGW’s unique guarantee of getting the funding.”
