Access to public financing has innumerable competitive advantages for the beneficiary entities that go beyond the financing of the project itself. A greater scope of the project or a reduction in its execution times are some inherent advantages of financing. However, there are other aspects to consider, such as collaboration with other entities, which can contribute to increase the scope of the project. A relationship can be established between entities that goes beyond its results, or greater visibility towards the market, positioning the entity as a benchmark in its sector or technological field.

From FI Group we manage investment tools through the so-called “tax lease” or “tax equity”, focused on R&D projects. In these private investment models, the participation of investors in R&D activities is carried out through a financial participation in an Economic Interest Group (AIE). The investors constitute the IEA, in which the developer company provides the necessary knowledge to carry out the R&D project, as well as part of the necessary financing.

At FI Group we carry out trainings and workshops related to the field of innovation. These have different formats and contents adapted to the theme and need of each situation. Since 2018 we have 2 editions and we have accelerated 5 startups in each edition.
