How can I fund Cloud adoption?
ANS has set up a £2Million fund to finance Cloud migration and adoption projects for small and medium sized businesses in the UK.
At ANS, we don’t believe it’s right that smaller companies are held back from achieving their ambitions by lack of access to the right technology. So, we’ve set up The Ambition Fund to help SMBs deliver Cloud and Dynamics 365 projects.
The Fund gives SMBs access to the latest Cloud and Dynamics solutions from Microsoft, ANS expertise, best practice and support.
Companies with less than 300 employees can apply for funding to deliver their Cloud Migration and Dynamics projects right now.
How are we funding this?
We’ve mobilised our huge ecosystem of suppliers and partners to contribute to the fund, while offering direct discounts on our latest products and services. The £2m funding pot is available for the next 12 months and any business with fewer than 300 employees is eligible to apply.

“Moving to a best in class, highly secure environment with a variable pricing model, delivered by one of Microsoft’s top 1% partners was a perfect solution” “Without the Fund support, it would have significantly altered the time scale of the technological project and the breadth of the project.”
