Horizon 2020 SME Instrument funds many types of activities all the way from feasibility studies, risk assessments and market studies for ideas, to prototyping, testing, demonstration to market-entry, scaling-up and internationalisation. Many entrepreneurs struggling to find the right investors for their business model might not even realise that they are eligible for EU funding, says Kumardev Chatterjee, Founder and Chairman of the European Young Innovators Forum.
I met with EU Startup Services Team early March 2016 and impressed by their track-record, I immediately decided to work with them on a Horizon 2020 Phase 2 proposal. The company assigned a senior writer to the project who quickly understood our business and helped make the process fast and flawless. After working with EU Startup Services for about 6 weeks, we submitted the proposal mid-April and got a positive response in May. Throughout the project, the EU Startup Services team also helped with most of the administrative work, which saved a lot of time, declared Emmanuel Nataf, CEO of Reedsy.
I first met Kumardev Chatterjee at the EU Funding workshop held in Vienna, Austria. I’ve been impressed by his high expertise, knowledge and professionalism and we decided to go for the SME Phase 1. I would recommend EU Startup Services to those who want to have a smooth collaboration and fast results in a short time, said Richard Lutschounig, CEO of Paybon.
