HSD updated its Finance Guide and launched it during the HSD Access to Capital Event on 19 June 2018. This Finance Guide has since been updated as of 27 September 2018 and is publicised as of the beginning of October.
The HSD Finance Guide gives an overview of finance opportunities and is aimed at Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The main objective is to keep innovative parties in the triple helix up-to-date on possible finance opportunities during different stages of the innovation process. Local investments, regional subsidies, national submissions and European programmes such as Horizon 2020 are mentioned in the Finance Guide. Are you an SME and looking for investment, subsidy or submission? Find more information in the HSD Finance Guide and access knowledge on available capital.
The HSD Finance Guide can be accessed online in both Dutch and English. You can find the Subsidiewijzer Nationaal here. The Subsidiewijzer has been subdivided into three categories, namely National, Regional, and European. You can find the Subsidiewijzer below.
