Innovation Brokers

Beware! We have received many applications for the innovation brokers' scheme. However, there is still a small budget available for an entrepreneur active in the domain of TKI Wind op Zee.

On Monday, January 16, 2023, a new round of the innovation broker subsidy of Energy Innovation NL opened. SMEs contributing to the transition to an affordable, reliable and sustainable energy system can apply for a subsidy for hiring an innovation broker. With this subsidy scheme, SMEs can reimburse the Innovation Broker fee for 80%, to a maximum of 10,000 euros including VAT.

Startups or scale-ups are often leaders in innovation. They frequently run into challenges because they are less familiar with the market, have no previous entrepreneurial experience or have limited financial resources. An 'innovation broker' can help.

An 'innovation broker' can offer you:

guidance and coaching in developing a business plan, business strategy or value proposition,
patent advice, assistance with patent applications or knowledge exploitation,
guidance in becoming ‘investor ready’, looking for financing or deal closing,
support finding and setting up consortia and project formation with other companies and/or knowledge institutions.
