what our clients think of us

“The team of c*funds 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 c*funds.

Many many thanks again! To our colleague start-ups: working with c*funds is 100% worth it.

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

Mo Radjab | Co-founder


“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!”
