Financing of Projects
One of the key questions asked by all types of organisations and individuals refers to the financing of development projects. There are several options, yet only few organisations and individuals meet the conditions to obtain funds despite there being many providers of funds. Our advisory services relate primarily to European funds and strategic partnerships and/or private funds invested by private investors in perspective development projects.
We publish articles about the strengths and weaknesses of individual types of financing, good and bad practices, strategies to obtain strategic partners and private investors, legal issues arising in the collaboration process between the recipient and provider of funds and about other issues connected with project financing.
In case you are (pre-)launching your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or any other crowdfunding campaign the names of those who regularly fund similar campaigns are at most important. It is recommended to choose between two options, i.e. (1) either to find a reliable service provider who would spread the word about your campaign via various media in the sector and on the markets you would prefer the most or (2) to find and use a reliable source of information by yourself.
