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 โ‚ฌ17.5M 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 in collaboration with Venture Capitalists (VC) and expert EU evaluators.
