John Isella
Strategic Development

Victoria Taranov
Principal Software Engineering Manager

KickYourTech is a user-friendly, easy to use and intuitive platform, which provides opportunities for implementing the projects and ideas to people all over the world.

Alan Merbaum
Senior Manager International Business Development

KickYourTech is an example of innovation converging with motivation. The skilled team of this organization provides a great solution for finding financial resources for many clients. Their ability to cover the market of grant financing is amazing and ambitious, making them unique and one of a kind in this field.


There are a lot of engineers, scientists, research centers having a huge amount of ideas and technologies developed. From the other side – a lot of funds, governmental and private organizations searching for financial investments to cover technological developments, but there was no single platform uniting both of them.

We decided to fix this issue and to create an online service, which would unite developers and grant donors on one easy to use platform. We still have many ideas for improving our service and we will continue to do so. We want to create a convenient online portal, where ideas and knowledge can become a reality.
