Welcome to Ron Flavin, grant funding consultant.
There are many funding experts out there, but one of the things that makes me unique is my particular familiarity with the landscape of government grants, incentives and business funding initiatives. I’ve developed this specialty to help early to mid-stage and established businesses access global, non-diluting funding opportunities and growth resources they may not have known existed. I assist them in getting to the next level by connecting them to funding and resources that help them achieve their domestic growth goals and even launch or expand international operations. I also work with nonprofit and indigenous organizations, governmental agencies and educational institutions in the U.S. and abroad, to help them secure the funding they need to develop infrastructure, fund technological upgrades and other modernization efforts and support programmatic development activities.
My own business journey began with the launch and growth of both retail and manufacturing businesses. Although I was very successful, I realized that manufacturing and selling stuff was not what I wanted to do with my life – I wanted to help other people achieve their own business or organizational success. After many years as a fundraiser and a grant writer, I no longer want to merely help people raise money, I want to help them achieve their most progressive vision, create new technological breakthroughs, and expand their businesses globally into territory they’ve never even imagined.
Over the last ten years, I have secured well over $200 million in funding for my clients. As a seasoned member of many funding decision-making teams, I have also participated in the allocation of more than $1 billion in funding in the last five years, alone. Regardless of whether you are a business or a non-profit, a municipality or an agency, I can match you to the right funding source, reverse engineer their thought process and help you deliver what they need to hear in order to support you in your growth and success.
I understand the funding process from the inside out. I get how funders and investors think, and that winning grants and securing funding takes more than a well-worded proposal. It takes a complete vision that encompasses a solid business plan, including strategic, growth, funding and revenue goals. I am familiar with this entire landscape, and I want to use my experience to guide you to the right resources for you – the resources that will expand your growth horizons, so you can realize the true potential of your vision.
I do this because I believe companies that push the boundaries of technology and global consciousness should have access to all the resources the world has to offer.

In developing the proposal, we focused not only on the technology but on the capabilities and experience of the management team, the commercialization plan, the business plan, the marketing plan and the validation from potential customers (e.g., Google, Yahoo, etc.).
Are we a good fit?
If you are a mid-stage startup, an established business, a state or municipal government agency, a school or university, an industry association, or a nonprofit with an annual budget of at least $500K, we may be a good match. If you are working in clean cities, IoT, AI, sustainability, new technology or some other progressive, tech-forward environment, then we should talk. If you are a tribal government or represent a significantly underserved population, then I want to help. I have a global perspective on the funding landscape that can help you to expand your operations and fully develop your vision. I can guide you through the funding process and beyond to help you harness all available resources effectively, to your greatest advantage.
