What innovators think

The EIC has opened the doors for us... We couldn’t have done it without them. My advice to Innovators starting out is to go through the EIC.

My experience with the EIC has been very good. They managed all our finances, monthly reports and helped us bring the project into fruition.

Working with the EIC has been great!...They are essentially a big brother to help you if you feel overwhelmed with the size of a project, they are always very helpful.
