Amount of support
The support for the innovative starters consists of a mix of financial support, external expert guidance and business case advice. All applicants – even those who have failed to get through the qualifying round- will receive information, advice and guidance tailored to their needs and potential.
The amount of the financial support is €50,000.
VLAIO does not request the exact costs of the project. However, a rough estimate of the division external vs internal costs will be requested in the project description. You should also be able to prove that the external and internal costs will together require at least one FTE or €70,000.
You are not allowed to simultaneously receive support for a development project, research project, ICON project or the SME Growth subsidy, and support for your innovative starters project.
