Consortium:

VFF focuses on 3 target groups:

  • SME entrepreneurs (small and medium sized)
  • Innovative starters (≤ 5 years)
  • Academic / HBO Innovative Starters (whose economic activities directly and promptly derive from research from a university, a college, an academic hospital)

Scope: With a loan from the VFF, starters and SMEs investigate whether their idea has a chance of success in the market (idea on paper – concept phase). Development of the first prototype is covered by the aim of investigating technical feasibility. Selling proto types or products that have already been granted IP, are not eligible, as that development is too mature for this loan.
