For start-ups: FundingBox portal provides easy and personalized access to public funding and interactive tech communities
For start-ups and SMEs, finding suitable funding programs is a major challenge. At the same time, the awarding bodies face the problem of having to distribute their information and funding offers to very heterogeneous interest groups.
FundingBox is a community where entrepreneurs can meet, interact and collaborate to get public money. The portal offers "scale-ups" (startups and technology SMEs) easy and personalized access to public funding and interactive tech communities.
In addition, awarding bodies use FundingBox to distribute their funds and build communities that can grow and become integral to their ecosystems. FundingBox has specialized in the so-called "cascade funding", which is an open call of EU-funded projects.
The portal currently offers two product suites: Discover and Enterprise. Discover is a B2C solution: a tool for start-ups and technology SMEs to find personalized public finance opportunities and engage with communities of people interested in taking their projects to a higher level. Enterprise is a B2B tool for intermediaries (accelerators, corporates, governments, and investors) to launch open calls, allocate funds, and build, strengthen, and optimize relationships with stakeholders.
