Co-creating the solution

Through collaboration and peer review we believe we can re-imagine a better grant-making system that reduces friction, risk, and costs for both funders and charities. That is why we are committed to obtaining feedback from funders and charities throughout the development of Brevio to co-create a sustainable solution.

In practise this means we are developing the platform in stages. As the platform progresses, we are showing the platform to funders and charities and seeking/ listening to their frank and honest feedback. This feedback is then used to guide the next stage of Brevio’s development.

We have received great support and encouragement from several major funders, as well as charities and sector associations.
