How we support you in your search for funding opportunities
Our tailor-made support enables us to optimize the financing of our clients’ projects by identifying partners and channels likely to support them (banks, public aid, private funds, crowdfunding, etc.). Our global approach to finding funding starts with the identification of needs, allowing the construction of the business plan necessary to formalize the financial file.
We then support our clients in the follow-up and management of their project financing.
Finally, we go as far as integrating an open innovation approach associating external partners in order to solidify our clients’ projects in their search for funding.
Examples of recent search for funding opportunities carried out for our clients
Search for funding and assistance in the preparation of a “Eurostars” financing application
Our team has assisted project leaders in the preparation of a “Eurostars” funding application and the search for French and European industrial partners.
Alcimed carried out a diagnosis of the current state of the project and then assisted the project leaders in identifying and setting up partnerships (establishing contacts and developing the consortium). Following this, we wrote the financial file, in collaboration with the project leaders on the non-scientific parts, and proceeded to a global critical review, until the final file was sent.
Our support in this search for funding allowed our client to structure its approach from A-to-Z and to guarantee an optimization of the content and form of its financial file.
Building a PO FEDER FSE application file and search for funding for the deployment of a “Living Lab”
We have supported two French regions in the construction of an application file for the PO FEDER FSE with a view to the deployment of a “Living Lab”.
Our team identified and mobilized the key local actors and then organized working meetings in the form of workshops in order to design a “Living Lab,” meeting the expectations of the funding client and the holder of the AAP. This work allowed for the construction of the response file to the AAP and the implementation schedule. Alcimed proposed a legal structure (operator, evolution towards a SCIC) and built a viable and sustainable economic model.
This work allowed our client to define the governance of the future “Living Lab” and to raise the necessary funds for its creation.
Search for funding regarding the launch of an open innovation challenge in the field of robotics
We created and launched a one-off external open innovation challenge for an energy company looking to boost a new innovation model in the field of robotics.
Our teams assisted our client in defining the synopsis, writing the rules of the game and the technical specifications, identifying financing methods, and launching the challenge.
Around thirty teams responded to the challenge at the international level, but only one team won!
Search for funding and preparation of applications: mapping of funding possibilities and preparation of applications for innovative start-ups
Our team helped the project leaders of an incubator to map the existing public and private innovation funding mechanisms and to put together funding applications.
We first worked on identifying and characterizing public innovation funding windows in France and Europe: funder, eligibility criteria, associated amounts and types of funding. Secondly, our team identified and characterized the private seed and fundraising mechanisms associated with the development of innovation in France, enabling our client to select the appropriate funding channels for its various projects.
Our team then assisted the project leaders in drafting their financing applications.
