We have good experience from previous application rounds, and companies such as Ventyr, Keenious and Pazzing started their journey with millions in funding from this scheme. In collaboration with UiT, we can now assist in the work of developing a business plan and offer free guidance to projects that want to apply. It is time-consuming to prepare a STUD-ENT application of high enough quality to be successful, so it is important that you get in touch early!
