Client's Testimonials

INKRIDGE has helped our company submit an H2020 EU grant proposal which involved multiple parts of our organization. They impressed us with their capability of fully understanding our domain, then pooling our internal expertise to write a remarkably high-quality proposal. They are extremely professional, organised, and reliable. I believe whomever works with them is in great hands - and we’d gladly work with them in the future.
— CEO & Co-founder / SME Instrument Phase 2 - Transport
INKRIDGE.consulting wrote for us the application for Horizon 2020 funds, transforming our ideas into an application which was finally approved against all odds. They studied our topic, investigated it further, covering both technical issues, marketing and business, demonstrating diligence and persistence in accomplishing the assignment. They are very familiar with the requirements of EU funding and so they led us to the finishing line successfully.
— Business Manager / SME Instrument Phase 2 - Health
Working with INKRIDGE was a great pleasure, resulting in a funded SME Instrument proposal. Their writer is highly competent scientifically, especially in topics connected to ICT and optical technologies, who ably merged knowledge from science, engineering, marketing, business and production domains. I recommend INKRIDGE as a professional H2020 consultant and business partner.
— Project Manager / SME Instrument Phase 1 - ICT-ODI
During our collaboration, INKRIDGE had a professional approach demonstrating ability to synthesize large volumes of information in a short period of time and transform it into meaningful proposal for the European Commission. They are methodical, goal-oriented and know in detail every step involved in the funding process. I highly recommend INKRIDGE.consulting for any SME that wants to apply for funding directly to the EC.
— CEO / SME Instrument Phase 1 - ICT-ODI
INKRIDGE prepared a winning SME Instrument Phase 1 proposal for our company in late 2016. Their level of experience and skill in terms of proposal writing is second to none. What impressed me the most is how they were able to take bits and pieces of our company’s documentation and materials, both pertaining to out technology and organization and merge it into a meaningful and winning proposal.

Competing consulting companies provide similar services with fees of 10% of the project budget, or more. We understand that such excessive rates put a considerable strain on applying companies, and ultimately sacrifice project goals.

Our philosophy is different. INKRIDGE offers a flat-rate of 2% or less (SMEI Phase 2 and FTI) that is independent of the project budget and is based exclusively on a risk-free, success-fee.

Our mission is to make the SME Instrument and FTI more accessible by reducing risk and consulting fees, reinforcing project budgets instead of crippling them, whilst providing the highest quality service leveraging our proven track record, high success-rate and extensive experience with EU projects at an affordable cost.
