Explore opportunities for financial support

We understand that your business journey requires strategic investments, which is why we are here to guide you through various support and grant options that can drive your business forward. Support and grants come in different forms, providing funds without the need for repayment. Instead, financing often comes with some kind of performance obligation, such as reporting to demonstrate the impact of the funding and the results achieved.

Authorities such as Vinnova and Tillväxtverket regularly issue targeted announcements for various industries and purposes. There is also a comprehensive range of competitions and scholarships that can provide both funding and significant attention if you win.
