Info Event – Funding | Non-dilutive instruments
All you need to know about the new "Horizon 2020" Accelerator Program
Since the beginning of 2017, Switzerland has had access to financing instruments through the EU program «Horizon 2020». The new H2020 Accelerator Pilot program launched in October this year is focused on high-risk and high-potential close-to-market projects (TRL 6/7) and allows for combining EU non-dilutive grant (€ 0.5-2.5 Mio ) with a (non-mandatory) equity option up to € 15 Mio. Further, it offers to SMEs a support program which includes mentoring and coaching.
Join our info-event to learn more about the lessons learnt in the first month of this new program and also to explore other funding instruments available in the region.
Meet the experts who will help you evaluate your chances to enter the program and support you with your application.
