Subsidies for entrepreneurs

Coaching and advice on a subsidized basis!

Did you know that if your company has 1- 250 employees (including yourself), you can take advantage of several growth subsidies? The government wants you to succeed as an entrepreneur, to grow your company nationally or internationally and to develop your employees (if you have any). This applies to both start-ups and mature companies, self-employed and SME’s. We have listed the options for you.

14 types of subsidies

We currently help entrepreneurs supported by 14 (!) types of subsidies as well as unsubsidized, so ask about options that fit your business and what you want to work on. So a coaching or consulting program at Brilliant Work is often 33-100% subsidized. It is possible to apply for multiple subsidies with us.
