Two out of the five Danish companies that got funded from “Horizon 2020 – Phase 2” at the April cut off 2017 was written and managed by 1st Mile. This emphasizes that 1st Mile is one of the most successful fundraising companies in Denmark.

In total, 69 small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) from 21 countries have been selected for funding in the latest round of the Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase 2. Five of these companies were from Denmark and 1st Mile was the author behind almost half of these.

The Danish companies that got funded are as following: Nerve Smart Systems, Advanced Substrate Technologies, Frandsen Industri Holding, 2cureX and Flowsion. 

The first two companies, Nerve Smart Systems and Advanced Substrate Technologies, both used 1st Mile to write their application which resulted in approximately 2,5 million Euros for each project.

The companies will also benefit from 12 days of business coaching. Most projects are proposed by a single SME but some companies team-up to elaborate a project.

The next cut-off for SME Instrument Phase 2 is on 18 October. 1st Mile has an 80% success rate and will make your application stand stronger in the competition.
