We are excited to announce the 2nd edition of our highly anticipated webinar series, the Sploro Cascade Funding Webinar Series. Following the success of our first session last month, we are delighted to continue this initiative aimed at empowering innovators and helping them tap into cascade funding opportunities.

At Sploro, we recognize the immense potential of cascade funding in driving innovation and accelerating the development of groundbreaking projects. This unique funding model provides a valuable lifeline for innovators by not only supporting their initial breakthrough but also enabling them to continue refining their ideas.

Building upon the success of our inaugural webinar, the second session promises to be even more insightful and impactful. We have curated a panel of three European Projects, that will share all the information about cascade funding opportunities closing in summer 2023.

This exciting event aims to provide valuable insights into cascade funding and present a series of monthly infodays that will serve as a gateway to countless opportunities for forward-thinking entrepreneurs and visionaries. The second session will be happening next 13th July at 10.00 CEST. Registrations are now open through this link.

Understanding Cascade Funding

Cascade funding is a unique financing approach that supports innovation and collaboration across various stages of project development. Also known as financial support to third parties (FSTP), is an instrument of the European Commission to distribute public funds and generate opportunities for SMEs, startups and/or mid-cap companies, in the adoption or development of digital technologies. It aims to nurture a collaborative ecosystem by encouraging knowledge sharing, idea cross-pollination, and fostering a dynamic network of innovators.
