In sustainable innovations, financing can mean the step from idea to reality. A good project proposal is indispensable in order to obtain a subsidy or another form of financing.
Developing your idea
Innovative projects have high start-up costs. Public funding is available for the development of sustainable innovation projects, such as grants or loans under favorable conditions. Various parties, including the Dutch government and the European Union, recognize the importance of sustainable innovation and offer opportunities for financial support.
Sustainable and profitable project proposal
Sometimes the innovation concerns an initial idea, sometimes a concrete plan, and in other cases scaling up a pilot or demonstration. In all cases, a good project proposal, including a description of the business case, is indispensable. Developing a project proposal helps convert an idea into a sustainable, marketable and profitable business concept. During the process the steps to be taken are defined, planned and budgeted and contacts are established with organizations that can contribute to the realization.
Do you have an innovative idea?
We support companies in setting up and submitting successful project proposals for innovations in the field of sustainable energy, circular economy and sustainable land use. These can be international, European, national and regional subsidy schemes.
We do not limit our efforts to applying for funding. Financing is not an end in itself. Successful development of sustainable projects is central to us. We provide support throughout the innovation process, from idea development to finding possible schemes and partners. We provide support in drafting project proposals, implementation and final reporting.
