Our Value Proposition


We are specialised in European R&D and Innovation funding schemes in the Horizon2020 framework. Our remarkable approval rate results from our long-lasting experience in this specific field. We know the “rules of the game”, we know the professional profile of who evaluates your proposal and we know how to write persuading documents. We know what questions evaluators must answer in the evaluation grid and we know the right vocabulary to use to convince them that yours is the best business idea of the call.


If you ask for funding is because, likely, you do not have much. We are aware that tech-based start-ups have limited financial capabilities initially. This is why we offer our services by charging you with affordable upfront fees. Our real profits come if and when you receive the funding. This means that you do not have high upfront costs and that we have a strong incentive to succeed together. 


We offer proposal writing services for the most competitive funding instruments, such as EIC Accelerator (SME Instrument), where the average success rate is between 3% and 5%! This is why we only work with deep-tech start-ups with high-impact projects. We accept a low number of proposals for each call, in order to be 100% committed for our clients. We always seek mutual benefit.
