TryLife has been funded in a variety of ways.

The primary seed capital source was Northstar Ventures, which invested through the Finance for Business North East Proof of Concept fund – The Proof of Concept Fund is backed by the European Regional Development Fund and the European Investment Bank.

Northern Film & Media, Dr Danny Ruta, Professor Stephen Singleton and Newcastle Science City also contributed towards the development of TryLife.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our family and friends for their support, our Facebook and Twitter community, absolutely everyone who has helped out and these people.
