Welcome to ScaleUp Radio, the podcast that brings you insightful conversations with industry experts and successful entrepreneurs. I'm your host, Kevin Brent and today we have a special guest joining us.

In this episode, we're excited to have Adam Pearce, the director of Minerva Innovation Group, a financial services company specialising  in R&D funding and tax relief. Adam's expertise and unique approach have earned him recognition and success in the industry.

Throughout our conversation, we dive deep into the world of R&D tax relief and its positive return on investment. We explore Adam's journey from a professional basketball player to founding Minerva Innovation Group, where he helps businesses capitalise on R&D tax relief.

We uncover the valuable lessons Adam learned from his sports career and how they apply to business. Discover how companies are open to collaborating with boutique R&D tax agents and how word-of-mouth has fuelled Minerva Innovation Group's growth.

Stay tuned as Adam and I discuss Minerva's consultant-led approach to R&D tax claims, their high client retention rate, and their focus on work-life balance and productivity. We also explore the legacy Adam aims to leave behind and the effortless referrals his company attracts.

Whether you're a business owner looking to maximise R&D tax relief or an aspiring entrepreneur seeking inspiration, this episode is packed with insights and strategies to help you thrive.
