R&D Bee (1)

Our Approach

We believe founders and executive leadership should be able to focus on what they do best, while we diligently take care of their research and development claims.

Our Story

Shane and Nikolay co-founded online jeweller Taylor & Hart prior to R&D Bee. The funding they received through consecutive successful R&D claims made an enormous difference to their ability to grow the business. After four successful claims, they decided to create a seamless process to help other companies complete their own claims.
