EXIST Business start-up grant
The EXIST programme aims at improving the entrepreneurial environment at universities and non-university research institutes. It also aims at increasing the number and success of technology and knowledge based business start-ups.
The EXIST Business start-up grant assists this target group in realising their start-up ideas and framing them in a business plan. These start-up projects are innovative technology-oriented or knowledge-based projects with significant unique selling points and good prospects of economic success.
EXIST is the follow-up to the programme of the same name in the 2014-2020 ESF programming period.
