Service description

This service aims to support EIC Transition and EIC Accelerator beneficiaries with their fundraising strategy, offering individualised consulting and access to a pool of relevant VCs. The service includes working on the supporting documents for the fundraising: go-to-market strategy, financials, possible valuation, and pitch deck. The outcome of the service is the facilitation of VC introductions so the beneficiaries can raise capital in a more structured and effective way. The first phase of the service is the diagnosis phase, where the beneficiary will receive a short questionnaire, followed up by a discovery meeting with the EIC Partner - the Techcelerator investment team. The diagnosis phase aims to assess the business maturity level and to get a sense of the fundraising needs of the EIC beneficiary. After the diagnosis phase, the EIC partner will propose a roadmap in order to support the fundraising process and close the round.
