Special Expertise

    Acquisition of public funds for tech companies

    We are experts in acquiring RTD funds from regional, national, and EU funding bodies for start-ups and scale-ups focusing on tech companies.

    EU Funds

    We have specialist expertise in the Horizon Europe program – the research and innovation framework program of the European Union (2021-2027). 

    We closely work with our customers, identify EU funding opportunities, develop a project, find partners, and assist in writing and submitting a winning application.

    We offer project application and implementation services to help clients seize new EU funding opportunities and turn innovative ideas into funded projects. This ranges from EU public grants identification, consortium recruitment, bid writing, selection of experts, negotiation with the granting authorities, budgeting, quality control, and implementation of projects.

    We also have extensive knowledge about the EIC Accelerator, part of the European Innovation Council (EIC),  a €10bn fund set up by the EU, awarding up to €17,5 million in funding per start-up (grant plus equity). Regarded as the holy grail of innovation funding, it is the largest, most competitive funding scheme for start-ups worldwide.

    We have won over 20 EU co-funded projects with total funding of more than €40 million for our clients.

    National and regional funds

    We have specialist expertise in German national RTD programs such as the ZIM program, the federal research allowance program („Forschungszulagen-Programm“), and regional programs (focusing on Berlin and Brandenburg regional programs – ProFIT, GRW).
