Even 80 percent co-financing for training and consulting services can be obtained by entrepreneurs under the program “Competences for sectors. COVID-19 Task ”. The initiative is aimed at micro, small and medium-sized enterprises interested in obtaining funds to cover the costs of training that help to run a business during a pandemic.
The aim of the project is to eliminate the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has worsened the situation of companies. The maximum amount of aid is up to 80% of the net cost of the service, and the budget of the project financed by POWER is approximately PLN 57 million. Companies interested in obtaining support have until March 22 to submit their application.
The company must start procedures for obtaining funding by completing the registration form, which can be found on the website of the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development. When completing the application, the entrepreneur indicates the industry in which he operates, thanks to which the operator serving a given sector can contact him. Communication is needed because the operator’s role is to check whether the company meets the conditions for participation in the program. The second task of the operator is to properly define the company’s needs and select the most suitable services available in the Development Services Database. It is from this catalog of training and consulting services available here that the entrepreneur applying for funding can choose.
