We love data, people with ideas and trends. We have passion to analyse pieces of the big picture, ranging from idea assessment and funding opportunities screening to business or research organization processes analysis and feasibility studies.

Project management

From analysis to tangible results - we are building implementation frameworks to turn the ideas into products and services. We provide full service, from project proposal writing to various funding programmes, to negotiations and project management during implementation and closing stages.

Any intervention has specific goals to achieve, a sort of "raison d'être". Therefore, we set up Key Performance Indicators and design result-oriented monitoring and evaluation frameworks to measure impact of the projects and programmes.
