Please feel free to contact Segler Consulting for a free consultation where we can discuss the scope of the Horizon Europe’s (2021-2027) EIC Accelerator (formerly SME Instrument Phase 2) and the general requirements for a successful grant application. We will briefly explain the background of the financing and assess the innovation project in-depth in order to identify the chances for success in this €17.5M program.

Hiring a professional writer or consultant can be done once the project has been thoroughly assessed (i.e. assessing a pitch deck, pitch video, one-pager, business plan, financials) which is expected to require at least 2 weeks. Following this assessment, the first stage of the application can be prepared but should have at least two months as preparation time ahead of the official EIC Accelerator cut-off for step 2.

Common questions that will be answered during the first call are:

  • What is the EIC Accelerator (SME Instrument)?
  • Does the project have good chances for success?
  • What materials must be provided for the application?
  • What is the timing, schedule and frequency of deadlines?
  • What are the fees of grant writing services?

It is recommended to fill out all of the form fields below and give a brief overview regarding the product, customers, business model and the track record of the applicant. The more information is provided, the faster an assessment can be performed.
