At Winnovart it is part of our mission to accelerate your access to relevant grants funding programmes. This is why we are constantly publishing insights and statistics related to the funding schemes we are working with, based on our direct experience with these schemes, based on surveys, as well as on publicly available data. While doing so, we also aim to bring more transparency in the grants-funding marketspace. We believe that more transparency will make the access to grants-funding easier. It will put you in a better position when making decisions related to grants-funding, as well as put a bit of positive pressure on Fund Operators to provide a better service to their clients (applicants and beneficiaries).  
This is our monthly Winnovart Insights & Statistics – March 2020 edition – and we hope you’ll enjoy it.  
Winnovart Insights
 
European funding trends – blended funding schemes.

European Private Equity/ Venture Capital organisations are showing interest in public-private funding schemes that bring together grants and private funding.  We have initiated a series of “by-invitation-only” surveys across stakeholders involved in pilot competitions so far. Key benefits: grants bring less risk, easier investment decisions as well as better return on investment for Private Investors. More will follow in the coming weeks and months from Winnovart. Read more

At Winnovart, we are one of the most successful independent consultancies with the EEA & Norway grants for private sector companies. In the past years we have raised over 20 mil euro in funding under this mechanism for clients from various industries across the CEE space.
