Augnet Team updates

1. Augnet is hiring for OEM and Roaming Advisors We are in the process of recruiting for our OEM and Roaming Advisors. Please feel free to make recommendations or enquire for further details.

2. Innovate UK grant update Our application got overall score of 78%. Unfortunately this time we were unsuccessful with our application due to high amount of applicant.

We worked together with talented team from Granted consulting to prepare for our application. According to Granted Consulting Senior Consultant Will Granger any application that scores over 70% is considered a 'fundable' project. In cases where more applicants score over 70% than there are available funds, the funder then moves to a portfolio based approach to select projects. Previous rounds have seen applicants that scored 78% secure funding. Unfortunately, this particular round was highly competitive, and we have no visibility on the portfolio approach taken. 

We will be readjusting our application and reapplying on the 16th of October.
