WHY ARE OUR TOOLS DIFFERENT FROM THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON-LINE?

Our tools are much more than than mere collection of official and non-official information available online. Every information is supported with valuable insights from experienced SME evaluators and best practice examples. There is no unnecessary theory. Our tools include practical and useful secrets, not available anywhere else.

Authors of the manual explain in simple and jargon free language what are the elements of the winning proposals and what are the biggest mistakes of rejected proposals.

You will save valuable time and costs, that would be otherwise allocated to alternative solutions, such as heavier engagement of your in-house resources or  expensive consulting services.

ALES PUSTOVRH, ABC ACCELERATOR, EU funding consultant
These tools are great and very helpful. Morover the manual has lots of insight. I especially loved the check lists and the additional instructions on what to include in the proposal.  

TOMAS SALAMON, Incomaker.com
The book helped us a lot with our preparation of H2020 proposal. Writing a good paper is still really complex job, but the book allows to avoid unnecessary mistakes and makes many things much clearer.

The manual is really useful. I use it in my everyday work and it helps me a lot. I took part in preparation of several SME Instrument applications (successful too) but although I am quite experienced your publication brought some very interesting insights.
