Today, the Slovene Enterprise Fund has released the long-awaited P2 2021 tender. The aim is to support newly established companies developing innovative, high value-added products, processes and services.
What does the Fund offer?
A startup company can receive a grant of €54,000 to spend on product development. But that's not all. The Fund offers rich substantive support in the form of an experienced mentor who will use their entrepreneurial experience and connections that will contribute to help accelerate development. The mentor support is enhanced by the Fund with special programs to help you bring your product to the market.
The programs are run by experienced, successful entrepreneurs and experts who back up their success with numbers.
Things you need to know
The call is for you if you have the following:
- a business that was founded between 1. 1. 2020 and 15. 3. 2021,
- an idea for an innovative product/service that you and your team may have already validated with early users, and
- a team that has the knowledge and a clear idea of how to make a product / service and bring it to market.
The battle gets tougher every year. On average, around 130 companies apply for the tender and only 40 receive funding. Having the right information at the right time is therefore crucial, along with a great product. For this purpose, the Fund will organize promotional events with local partners across Slovenia to present what, how, why and what form of support they can offer when applying for the tender. They will be available for 1: 1 feedback on whether your idea is suitable for the tender or not.
Places are limited but you can register now for the event near you. Would you like us to notify you of confirmed dates and locations and book you a ticket in advance?
