DGP provides a selection of appropriate funding sources taking into account the investment objective, the timetable for its implementation and the maximum amount of the grant.

We create financial engineering taking into account own resources, debt financial instruments, such as bonds / credits, preferential loans, guarantees and bank guarantees as well as forms of equity capital (including venture capital funds and private equity).

DGP carries out an analysis of investment needs.

We determine the size of the company based on the number of employees, examine balance sheet of assets and analyze investment expenses in terms of the possibility of their financing from public funds, alternatively from other funding sources.

DGP team is specialized in preparation of applications.

We include additional analyses depending on the needs of the contest, for example feasibility study and business plan, export strategy, etc. We provide support in obtaining the required attachments, such as reviews of innovation, environmental documents, financial documents, market research, building permits, etc. We conduct financial and economic analyses as well as sensitivity and risk analyses.
