forget searching on those complex EU sites…

Find all the funding basics you want to know in our condensed funding overview for 2018!

what is c*funds

You can go for series A, series B investments or for c*funds. c*funds stands for a meaningful mix between EU funds (Horizon 2020/SME Instrument) and private investments for start ups. With our inexhaustible passion for entrepreneurship and ‘quick on our feet’ thinking we help write those tricky EU funding proposals & getting private investments. Our recently launched grant writing platform, the c*platform, simplified the traditional SME1 (50K funding) grant writing process with clear examples and tasks.


We share the same passion for cutting-edge technologies as our startups do and keep a laser sharp focus on fundraising.

Meet us to raise funds from both the EU and Seed Investors!
