From Intelectium, we are experts in applying for and managing Startup Capital and INNOTEC calls. We help you assess your startup's eligibility for the call. Once analyzed, we prepare a detailed report through which we can request and manage INNOTEC help.

We operate under a completely success-oriented model, in which we don't charge initial set up fees to start working, but we are at risk and only get paid if we get funding for the company.
