Funding is an important accelerator of science and R&D. However, it can be challenging to get the right funds that fit your aspirations. ttopstart aids in building funding strategies and acquiring funds, both dilutive (e.g. VC funding) and non-dilutive (e.g. grants, subsidies, loans).
Funding for fundamental science
ttopstart aids in acquiring funds for long-term investments in infrastructure, people and ideas. Together, we advance our fundamental understanding of biology, health, disease, materials and many of the other enigmas of life.
Funding for translational science
We expedite the discovery and development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic platforms, digital health solutions, novel classes of (bio)materials, clinical insights, and research tools. We do this by fitting funding opportunities and building winning grant proposals.
Funding for start-ups
ttopstart helps to kick-start new biotech and medtech ventures. We co-design and implement a balanced funding strategy that consists of dilutive and non-dilutive options, including subsidies, loans, and equity investments.
Funding for scale-ups
We aid in developing corporate finance strategies that accelerate the growth of your company and align with your projected exit, value-creation model and R&D milestones.
