The idea for Get Business Grants came from the team at Xsortal, who wanted to simplify the grants process and make grants more accessible to UK businesses.
- Get Business Grants was developed by the team at Manchester-based business information company Xsortal.
- Xsortal’s experience with data and identifying gaps in markets led them to the development of the grants portal.
- Before Get Business Grants, there was no single place online to find, apply and get funding for grant projects.
- The portal simplifies the grant-finding process and provides support with grant applications to increase the chances of getting funding.
Meet the Team
Our team has worked together for nearly two decades and has a proven track record of successfully creating data platforms. We bring a wealth of business experience across various industries to help drive success for our clients.
Mike has always worked with data from his early university years, through running his own business and then setting up a business consultancy with his wife. Mike always starts with the business problem first and then works backwards into leveraging the data. So the key question at the outset is always this: “What problem do you want solve?” and then, “Let’s look at the data to find out how its going to help you solve it.”
Wai-Kit is part of the original Xsortal team, and over the past 13 years has been managing and contributing to all stages of the data transformation platform development and implementation process. She plays the vital role as the ‘glue’ that brings together all elements of our projects to ensure they are delivered successfully.
Kwong has over 13 years’ experience in designing data platforms and together with the team he analyses and extracts relevant business intelligence from internal and external data sets that help businesses make better data-driven decisions. He also oversees the content team who source, select, and profile business data for the Xsortal Matcher Platforms.
Dr. Agatha Wong-Fraser
Agatha met Mike at university so they’ve always shared a passion for using data to solve business problems. Agatha has built an exceptional business knowledge over the years, consulting with nearly 200 companies in the UK and China. “What keeps you awake at night?” is a favourite starting question and then, “Let’s look for the data to help you get a better night’s sleep.”
Mark has been designing and implementing database applications for over 20 years. He has worked on a wide range of applications from handheld computers, banking applications through to data matchers for Xsortal. He works closely with the team to design and build custom databases and matchers that enable businesses to extract the right business intelligence from their data.
