Who we are
1st Mile has been writing applications since 2007, and as we write and submit more than 30 large applications every year, we know how to compile a convincing application.
Our team consists of 10 business development, technology and finance professionals with a deep understanding of how to secure funding.

What our clients have to say

“Success when applying for the big funding-amount for support is very much dependent on insight knowledge of the framework and best practice. 1st Mile is unique, as they have in-depth experience and high success rate with this type of applications. Without the highly professional and intensive effort by 1st Mile, I do not think that we would have had an approved project today.”

Sune Alstrup Johansen

CEO at The Eye Tribe

“The EUDP grant is a seal of approval for our technology as well as our potential within smart buildings which is one of our core markets. The grant provides us with the opportunity to speed up development of our core products, which will put us further ahead of the competition. We are grateful for the trust that EUDP has shown us with this grant.”

Rolf H. Sprunk-Jansen

CEO at LED iBond International

“We chose 1st Mile to optimize our EUDP application because they have previously helped many other companies with a high success rate. They quickly entered the project and have been a great help to us. Søren and his talented employees have been an important element in achieving a very satisfactory result.”
