Ryan Acquires Grants Discovery Business, Fundingportal
Mentor Works parent company Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, announced the acquisition of The Funding Portal Inc. (“Fundingportal”), a grants discovery and digital operating platform that matches clients with grant and government funding opportunities. This strategic acquisition will further expand Ryan’s government funding and grant offerings to existing clients, while expanding the Firm’s client portfolio.
Founded in 2011, Fundingportal is a funding subscription services and software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider that assists companies, municipalities, nonprofits, and other organizations to secure grants, government incentives, and other funding.
“The strength and success of the grant discovery and screening platform Fundingportal provides cannot be overstated,” said Ryan Chairman and CEO G. Brint Ryan. “Since its founding over a decade ago, Fundingportal has developed a strong reputation helping companies and other organizations to identify and secure grant and government funding opportunities. This acquisition positions Ryan extremely well to ensure our clients are in a position to benefit from the diverse array of these programs in Canada and beyond.”
“We felt like Ryan was a good fit because of its powerful reputation in the industry, innovative use of technology, and exemplary record of client service,” said Alexandria Shannon. “The combination of Fundingportal’s platform with Ryan’s government funding practice marries best-in-class technology and experts. We look forward to joining a magnificent work environment and continuing to provide exceptional results and service for our clients across North America and beyond.”
The acquisition of Fundingportal follows Ryan’s recent acquisition of Mentor Works, a leading government funding and grants firm in Ontario. Combined, these two transactions greatly expand and strengthen Ryan’s market-leading Government Funding and Grants practice.
