From the idea to the product, we would be pleased to support you in your project with the following services and advise you on possibilities for funding at the state, federal and EU level.
The development and management of national and international networks is part of our core business.
We have extensive know-how in the field of ZIM network and cluster management and support partner companies and scientific institutions to identify ideas and joint projects within our networks. Our network managers accompany the application for financing of innovation projects and ensure reporting and accounting to the project sponsors in compliance with the guidelines.
We also ensure a constant exchange between the participating companies and scientific cooperation partners at home and abroad.
Innovations are created from an interdisciplinary perspective
In 2018 we started to expand the international „T+I Circular Bioeconomy Cluster“ by adding three additional networks. The cluster gives network partners the opportunity to exchange interdisciplinary information with partners of the other networks within the framework of joint events. A further cluster is in the works.
ZIM (Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand) is the most successful German funding program of the Federal Government in supporting innovative, medium-sized companies. ZIM pursues the goal of supporting unique advancements and the development of market-ready products in small and medium-sized companies. They promote individual, cooperation and network projects as well as services for market introduction. SMEs receive funding for up to 55% (national project) or 60% (international project) of their project costs while research institutions receive 100%. More information about ZIM
As part of our innovation consulting, we identify current and future market and technology trends. From this, we derive the necessary innovation strategies and development priorities for start-ups and medium-sized companies in order to remain competitive in the future.
We support small and medium-sized companies toward acquisition of subsidies.
The aim is the successful acquisition of funds for the financing of innovation projects.
Companies in the commercial sector, including handicrafts, which want to introduce an innovative product or an innovative technical process in their company with the help of external consulting, can use a German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy innovation voucher from the „go innovative“ program. They must have fewer than 100 full-time employees at the time the consultancy contract is concluded.
With this voucher, up to 50 percent of the selected consulting services at the respective service level (potential analysis, realization concept, project management) can be subsidized.
If you are a small or medium-sized company in the commercial or trade sector and want to digitize your operations, we support you using the two modules „Digitized Business Processes“ and „IT Security“ in optimizing processes and tapping additional market shares through digitization.
Here up to 50 percent of the selected consulting services in the respective category can also be subsidized.
As an authorized consulting firm for these programs, we will take over the acquisition and processing of the subsidies for you.
If you are interested in one of the programs, please visit the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) homepage.
With our consulting tool “VC-POINT”, we help start-ups and innovative medium-sized companies to prepare and raise venture capital to finance their growth strategy.
We work along the entire value chain from start-up, growth and expansion, to financing in the context of succession planning.
Furthermore, we support our clients in their approach to investors and the professional preparation for investor due diligence.
In doing so, we draw on a unique database that currently contains the financing offers of over 1,400 active institutional investors and corporate venture providers from Germany and abroad.
In order to obtain sound information for important strategic decisions, more and more medium-sized companies are relying on market and competition analyses.
A further specialty of T+I is conducting analyses on topics such as market entry, customer identification, market trends, competition and internationalization. We take the work off our clients‘ shoulders and use appropriate tools to extract relevant and trustworthy data. We are happy to examine your ideas at an early stage in terms of feasibility, financing capability, prototype testing, marketability and competition.
