Green business & marketing support

Supporting the development of renewable energy technologies

FREED assisted SMEs and start-ups in the NPA to further develop, test, and promote their pioneering solutions that change the way energy is used, stored, produced and transferred. Through the FREED support service SMEs can speed up the process that takes the innovations from the blueprints to the store shelves, to find and apply for funding and to raise their business maturity. Thanks to the FREED support, Organic Power has developed a prototype of their innovation, created a business plan, and received academic and industrial support to help take their innovation to the next level.

I have received Business Plan & Marketing Support, Funding and expertise for testing viability and help to develop and test the innovation prototype for commercialization.
