P2R public tenders
The purpose of P2R public tenders is to promote start-up companies and the successful transfer of the ideas of entrepreneurial individuals and groups to successful market undertakings, and for stimulating the creation of jobs. To that end, support is provided to a target group of companies in the most vulnerable phase of development. In particular, they are encouraged to develop their entrepreneurial competences through inclusion in entrepreneurial support programmes. Subsidies allow companies without sufficient financial resources to develop faster and more intensively, and thus improve their financial position. Support is provided to improve operations and achieve development potential with the aim of lowering the failure rate during the initial phase of operations and improve competitiveness on the domestic and foreign markets. The development of supported companies and the successful transfer of the ideas of entrepreneurial individuals and groups to successful market undertakings and the establishment of new companies with growth potential are monitored, with an emphasis on the commercialisation of products, processes and services.
Eligible applicants: Companies that may apply for a tender include micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that perform an economic activity as legal entities or individuals and that are organised as companies, sole traders, cooperatives or institutions and social enterprises that have been transformed in accordance with the Social Entrepreneurship Act. Companies that have been operating for less than three years or in accordance with the dates set out in tender documentation may apply.
