DRAFTING OF BUSINESS PLANS AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PLANS

Techinnova will assist you through all the stages of drafting the documents necessary for both companies and future entrepreneurs to:

  • plan their own development;
  • access to bank financing loans;
  • insurance guarantees;
  • investments from venture capital and risk investors.

The relevant documents include technical specifications, market research, analysis of competitors and customers, determination of the selling price of products and services, cost and investment analysis, and the medium-term business plan.

 PIONEER OF LEAN APPROACH

Given its aptitude for innovation, Techinnova is also progressively moving towards a Lean approach in drafting business plans, thus exploiting the insights derived from the Business Model Canvas.

As this approach is privileged for the international markets, it is particularly suitable for foreign partners.

DRAFTING OF APPLICATIONS FOR SUBSIDIZED FINANCE

Aware of the ever-increasing utility of this tool not only for the growth and consolidation of companies, but also for the transformation of ideas into business realities, Techinnova has acquired skills and expertise that enable it to skilfully navigate its way through numerous calls for subsidised funding made available by provinces, regions, nations or the European Union. This funding – either non-repayable or low-interest – allows the realisation of R&D projects, structural adjustments of the company and the attainment of certifications.

Thanks to its experienced team and daily contact with various institutions, Techinnova is able to assist companies in the key stages of subsidised finance activities:

 

  • finding information on calls for proposals;
  • procedures for drafting funding applications;
  • building synergies with other companies, universities and national and European stakeholders in order to fully exploit the clustering of skills, economies of scale and scope, as well as of aggregation;
  • obtaining funding through subsidised finance instruments and supporting the conclusion of equity crowdfunding deals.
