Feasibility studies

Verbos prefers to undertake a feasibility study before following up on your business ideas. This study will provide you with an overall view of your business case and an assessment of its merits. Your business plan can be examined on different scales. Verbos would determine in consultation with you its scope so that it meets your requirements best. In most cases we are also able to find the funding that is needed to reduce the costs for these feasibility studies.

Business planning

Converting an idea or feasibility study into a business plan can prove to be quite a challenge. However, we are there to assist you in setting up a business plan in a structured manner so that potential funders can take a well informed decision. Based on our experience, it is common for issues of significant importance to arise during the planning phase. These issues have somehow been overlooked or not yet considered by our clients. Verbos can also assist you in finding additional funding to reduce your project costs.

Strategizing

Verbos provides guidance in setting-up and implementing the most fitting strategy for your company. This often involves a combination of the chain approach, internationalisation, innovation, investment and the increasing “necessity” of providing business in a social responsible manner. We have gained many years of international experience in the sector and a strong network that benefits you.

Matchmaking

Verbos has a large network in the Dutch and international development sector. This network consists of: entrepreneurs/companies, NGO’s, local embassies, universities, financiers and investors. We can help you find your potential partners in both the Netherlands and internationally. We have been an official qualified partner of the Dutch government for international matchmaking for a number of years. With these means, the Dutch government may be able to fund the costs of the work that Verbos undertakes for the foreign party.

interim/project management

You may require temporary management solutions. We are capable of providing you with the necessary short- term fulfilment. This could be a temporary take-over of a management function, change management or the temporary provision of additional know-how. We are in favour of implementing project agreements that provide clarity for both involved parties. This would include the content, length, costs and desired project outcomes. We would like to guide your specific projects in the area of for example innovation, internationalisation, the set-up of consortia for specific purposes or arranging international partnerships. In addition to our project involvements in Western Europe, our team also has a large amount of experience with international projects in emerging and developing economies. We are frequently involved in the coordination or management (partially) of the project implementation after the (business) plan has been approved and the funding has been arranged.

Financial Support

Nowadays it is necessary to find more creative ways of financing businesses. Verbos is able to form these puzzle pieces and place them together. You will need capital for expanding your business or setting up a new business. It is highly likely that you will be able to fund your business partially with your own resources, however, in most cases, you will require additional funding. Your bank may not always offer the financial assistance that is needed for your business. By means of this, a combination of different forms of capital may provide the solution. This could include grants, loans or the capital of additional shareholders. Ultimately Verbos aims for the best solution that meets your requirements.

Equity

In most cases you will need additional capital for the set-up and further development of your business. However, you might not be able to secure funding from your bank. In these circumstances, you may consider finding investors who will be prepared to invest in your business. There are different possibilities of capital: seed capital, informal investors, impact investors and venture capital. Are you in search of capital or seeking companies to invest in? Feel free to contact us for more information.

Structured finance

Even though we work with as well as investors, funders and grant providers, we notice a need for customised solutions. This is called financial engineering or structured finance. This means that it would be possible to provide a combination of financing approaches (loan / grant / equity). If you have a magnificent business case, we would be more than happy to work with you.

Debt finance

In recent years, the banking sector has undergone a significant change. It has become increasingly difficult for small or medium companies to secure funding through “standard” procedures. However, Verbos foresees potential growth for an alternative, new way of funding. In consultation with you we will consider the different possibilities of obtaining loans from banks or/and other sources.

Grant Service

Verbos provides assistance in acquiring funding for your project. We have many years of experience in acquiring grants and implementing subsidised projects. This would include funding for feasibility studies, business planning, research and development or investments in emerging and developing economies. However, Verbos is not a “subsidy centre” that works exclusively from a funding point of view. It is precisely our entrepreneurial mind-set driving the services that our team provides you with. This added value implies that your business plan is paramount to us and that Verbos ensures these subsidies truly match your business plan. From then onwards Verbos manages the full funding process – from its application, implementation and finalisation. In short: you gain your funding and Verbos will take on the full administrative burdens. Verbos offers assistance in the following the services:

Grant inventory

Do you have a development plan for an innovative project? Or would you like to expand your business on an international level (for example in emerging economies)? You will then need to identify the funding possibilities for your projects in an early stage, as that will increase your chances on getting subsidy. Verbos conducts comprehensive research based on your company/project descriptions that has been determined in consultation with you. Verbos will provide you with a report that will include all the findings and funding opportunities for your project.

Grant application

Grant reporting and project management

Your commitment does not end after being awarded the grant. You will still need to follow up on a number of obligations that come along with the funding. We will provide you with the assistance in the project management for mitigating the project risks so that you are ensured of receiving your awarded grant.
