About us

Crazy about tech

When you’re working on high-risk technological developments, you could use a financial boost. Luckily, that’s what all those schemes for – but we’d much rather talk about what you’re working on: the content, the engineering, the innovations. That’s what gets us excited.

Everyone at Real1ze has a technical background. One’s a mechanical engineer, another is an expert in biomedical technology. Of course, we have specialists in such fields as material science, physics, programming and electrical engineering, in-house.

Our experts will gladly come to see you, to talk about your technology; about your goals, and the direction you’re heading in, and the bottlenecks in your work that makes it difficult and technically challenging. We like to do that in a personal meeting.

Real1ze realizes
How are we different from the average subsidy advice agency? The answer is in our name: we are more of a subsidy realization agency. We don’t stop at providing advice. In fact, that’s only the start! We will help you fine-tune your idea and write the application for you. Is your scheme or subsidy granted? Then we will support the administrative process in its entirety. Unless you want to do that yourself, of course – that’s no problem.

Do you develop innovative products or software? Real1ze would love to help you realize funding for it. We are experts at assisting high-tech companies in the application and follow-up of (inter)national schemes and innovation subsidies.
