For a new venture, funding options differ in each of 3 typical development stages:
1. Exploration stage is a “pre-seed”/“seed” phase where the company needs to back financially its first research investments. Typical funding: Research grants and Crowdfunding
2. Innovation stage is an “early stage” phase where the company prepares its innovation to the market and to execute a business take-off. Typical funding: Innovation grants and Business angels.
3. Growth stage is a “scale-up” phase where the company wants to exploit any opportunity to grow and expand quickly. Typical funding: Venture Capital and Banks.

When required, we coach our clients to better defend the case (in documents and in presentations).
We provide a large support on Public Funding (EU grants) and on Private Funding (equity and debt):
