Arch Grants not only asks me how they can help, but then they deliver when I do ask. They were totally responsible for obtaining a letter of support for our phase II grant from a global company in which I had zero contacts or prospects.

Arch Grants has always had an attitude of ‘ask us and we will make it happen.’ We’ve leaned on them to share industry trends, introduce us to potential investors, and to champion our name in the region. We’re so thankful for the support.

Because of Arch Grants, we’ve had the courage to work in a more challenging market with higher returns. Not only was the $50,000 grant helpful, but the credibility we received, as well as the introductions to potential clients, has helped us become successful faster than we predicted
