You are an entrepreneur, planning to start your StartUp / SME or have already started and are in the early stages. Your StartUp /SME is an innovative ICT based concept, product or service which has the potential to ultimately disrupt existing markets. You are looking for swift financial support of between €50.000 and €2,5 million in 2014. Then this workshop is for you. Background: The European Union has for the first time in its 60 year history, launched programs to directly fund entrepreneurs and StartUps and SMEs. This is the so-called “HORIZON 2020″ which has €80 billion in grant funding available, of which €2.8 billion is purely for Entrepreneurs, Startups and SMEs. Entrepreneurs and Startups can apply for and get grants of between €50.000 and €2,5 million. The workshop will help you understand what EU funding for Entrepreneurs, StartUps and SMEs means, how it works and which schemes could be relevant for you. It will explain how to assess which scheme your StartUp is eligible for and how to apply to that scheme – the whole process from proposal to grant, including what types of activities are funded. Most importantly, the workshop will equip you with all the information, tools and hands-on training to write winning proposals – taking a case study of a typical entrepreneur and their StartUp / SME, a detailed step-by-step live demonstration of how to write a proposal with high chances of succeeding. Finally the workshop will enable you to rate your idea and proposals and improve them before submitting.
