Soft Money: Adding an EU Grant to Your Financing Mix
October 14, 2021 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 am
For any start-up or small company, non-dilutive funding can become an essential component of a healthy financing mix. Government and non-government grants are abundantly available on local, national and European levels. However, funding instruments are numerous, competition is fierce and preparing an application takes time. In addition, for most entrepreneurs grant application and grant management comes on top of all other responsibilities for which time is already scarce. How do you select the right grant for your project? What can increase your changes towards a successful application? And how can you secure and manage the grant once you have a positive decision?
During this session we will focus on EU grants. Our speakers will provide an overview of available EU funding possibilities and will guide you through the identification of relevant funding opportunities. They’ll also discuss some of the key considerations and criteria in line with EU funding applications and grant management and increase your understanding on the ins and the outs of such processes before engaging into a grant application.
The session will continue with a panel discussion in which different stakeholders will discuss considerations in identifying the right opportunity for your start-up, and how this might strategically fit your financing mix.
