Finance your Innovation – non-dilutive funding and support for startups and SMEs


Innovation is the key for continuing successful business. Often, innovation is created by collaborating with partners from other businesses, countries and institutions. To initiate and maintain collaborations, non-dilutive funding opportunities for SMEs became increasingly important as a strategic source of financing and support (e.g. EU-Programs like Horizon2020 and Eurostars, foundations, awards and Swiss programmes like Innosuisse/CTI). In particular, the European research and innovation programs are important tools to increase the effectiveness of developing new products.
Who should attend? and Euresearch Basel offer this attractive afternoon event now for the fourth time for SMEs, startups, and people with an entrepreneurial spirit as well as for stakeholders who are active in this field. They will get a unique overview on different international and national funding opportunities including practical examples of successful applicants. Further, the event provides a structured approach to get into contact with supporting organisations and speakers from the industry.
