Through its Capacity Building Fund, BIO provides grants to co-finance feasibility studies and technical assistance programmes.
A feasibility study is an essential step in the process of creating or developing a company.
It aims to prove that a project is technically viable, economically profitable and is a pre-requisite in the drafting of a business plan.
Grants for feasibility studies are provided up to a maximum of 50% of their total cost and capped at EUR 100,000 per project.
BIO can also support technical assistance programmes upon request of its investee companies in order to improve performance, become more competitive and strengthen the impact on sustainable development through training, advice and skill transfers.
These grants are non-refundable.
