Incentive Systems Applications

In recent years, this area of NaRede’s activity has enabled us to approve applications worth thousands of euros, thus guaranteeing our clients access to the funds made available by the various Incentive Systems.

NaRede works with its partners from the initial stages of project preparation through to completion. We carry out a thorough analysis of the feasibility of the project, study the respective financing possibilities in detail, and present the right options for realizing the idea.
