Do I qualify?

Any business or organisation in the UK employing five or more staff can seriously consider a KTP. All KTPs should be challenging to all parties, be of genuine strategic value to the business partner and there must be a significant bottom line impact from projects. We work closely with you to help identify and scope projects that qualify.

What are the costs?

KTPs are subsidised by the Technology Strategy Board making them a very cost-effective way of driving your business forward. A small to medium sized business (SME) can expect to pay approximately £18,000 per annum for a KTP. Larger companies can expect to pay approximately £25,000 per annum.
