Often we hear “I don’t have the time”. We fully understand. You want to focus on executing your business instead of writing about it. But the reality is that in order to obtain finances through funding or investments you will have to put your business on paper.  In a compelling way. We help you to do so in a very efficient way. We write, review and give access to investors. We give you personalized expertise on your funding journey, ensure you have all the content the funding parties are looking for and we save you time; all to reach the end goal of raising money!


To see what is your best financing fit:


funding requested (EUR)


success rate on getting investments and EU funds


startups supported


startup accelerators as clients


strategic partnerships with investors

what our clients think of us

“The team of Cfunds is unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable that helped us with our first SME 1 proposal. We received the right guidance and support which resulted in our first successful submission. We are surely not there yet, so we’re looking forward to our next step together with Cfunds.


P.s. due to you guys we saved at least 2 months time!


Many many thanks again! To our colleague start-ups: working with Cfunds is 100% worth it”

Mo Radjab, Co-founder, MijnKassabon

“A very dedicated and knowledgeable team that helped us succeed and go the extra mile! c*funds guided us well along the process and without them we would have spent 2-3x the amount of time. Absolutely worth it!”

Arthur Nobel, Co-founder, Flexpat

“I am very happy to recommend c*funds. c*funds saved us time by helping to write the proposal. Their knowledge of EU subsidies and experience in submitting proposals helped us to save time and effort that we can best dedicate to developing the business. The result of our partnership with c*funds was an EU seal of excellence twice, reflecting the high score of our proposals”
