Feasibility, Business Planning and Bid Development

It is now more important than ever, with resources heavily constrained and private finance difficult to secure, for organisations to develop the most compelling cases possible for investment in their projects. The ekosgen approach is based on economic analysis, in-depth experience of appraisal methodology and anability to present evidence in a way that meets the requirements of highly competitive funding streams such as the ERDF and Regional Growth Fund. From the point at which a project is conceived, this means extensive feasibility testing, options assessment, and the development of a robust business plan that can stand the test of time.
