The KMO portfolio is a measure through which you - as an entrepreneur - receive financial support to purchase services that improve the quality of your business. Specifically, these are training and consultancy services such as drawing up a communication plan for your company. Small enterprises enjoy 30% support, a medium-sized enterprise 20% support. The maximum support ceiling per year is €7,500 support.

The SME portfolio wants to be accessible to as many companies as possible. That is why we make it easy to apply and submit grant requests. Apply for your grant here.
