Fail post: Supertitle Funding

I’m very keen to run eQuality Time as an absolutely transparent organisation, and this includes the failures as well as the successes.

So I’ve the last few months I’ve been talking a little about the Supertitle project,  We introduced the concept, then we talked a little bit about the prototype.  I’ve also been trying to get a little bit of funding to develop the project
Our first funding application was to Unltd, which actually funded some early development on Project TooManyCooks.
Unfortunately they recently came back to us with a rejection.  I’m surprisingly upbeat about funding rejections – it’s data at the very least and it generally helps to know where you went wrong.  It also means that I’m at least reaching for things that are difficult.  I’m a big believer that if everything is going well, you probably aren’t ambitious enough.
If you’d like to read my unsuccessful bid for funding, you can find it here: SuperTitleUnltd.doc. (I’ve redacted some of my details and those of my references).  As with all funding proposals, it’s slightly different from the more broad goals that I normally talk about. It’s very concentrated on a small-scale proof-of-concept event.  Looking at it now there is a lot I’d change about it, which is always a good thing 🙂
