EU Consulting and HBOR/HAMAG-BICRO Consulting

EU Consulting

We proactively monitor existing and planned tenders.

Our team is not just consultants writing tender documentation for the project, 

but a team that is considering improving your business and financing 

the projects through a completely new perspective.

The company Boost focuses on tenders aimed at micro, 

small and mediumsized entrepreneurs, and among clients IT, manufacturing and

young and innovative companies developing their solutions in the direction of IoT.

The service  includes:

  • Preparation and writing of project applications  project conceptualization
  • Consultancy in the implementation of projects
  • Preparation of tender documents and financial reports
  • Participation in analytical monitoring and preparation of annual reports



We assist in applying for funds provided by these institutions, 

as a complement to EU funding, but also without EU funding.

We help clients prepare application documentation for HBOR and HAMAGBICRO loans.

Since co-financing through EU funds is not a banking service, state bodies that file and evaluate applications for EU funds, have to be sure that the proposed project and related activities are absolutely meaningful and business-justified. In doing so, the business plan is the only document that can guarantee the success of the proposed business idea. In this sense, the business plan must be fully detailed and all information quantified and verifiable. The Boost team will explain all the details of the co-financing by stages and expected steps. Only then can you decide whether you want to fund your development through EU funds or otherwise.

Boost LLC follows a number of tenders which are available through the Structural Funds. Company is focused on tenders targeted at micro, small and medium-sized entrepreneurs, such as product certification, participation at international fairs; introduction of recognized business process management systems (ISO 9001, 14001, etc.), investing in Hardware-Software solutions etc.

Boost also monitors co-financing services and / or alternative financial funding sources offered by the institutions such as HAMAG Bicro, HBOR, county and city funds.

Boost approaches to the EU funding through several steps. Primarily, client is informed about all the good and bad sides including possible consequence of such type of financing. It is clearly defined with the client what does Boost provides and performs at the operational level and given financial offer to the client can be fully or partially accepted or rejected. Boost greatly differentiates the writing service from the (already approved) project management service.

In a period 2014-2020. Boost has 100% success in withdrawing funds from EU fund programmes for its clients.

ISO Consulting

Boost LLC conducts business consulting for the preparation and implementation of ISO standards:

  • ISO37001 (ABMS) that specifies governance to counter bribery

During the development and preparation of documentation for each ISO standard, process and procedural adjustments are made to the internal client organization

Boost has the experience and expertise in the implementation of the four key international standards that are most commonly practiced in the Republic of Croatia, such as QMS (Quality Management System - ISO 9001), EMS (Environmental Management System - ISO 14001), ISMS (Information Security Management System - ISO 27001) and OH&S (Occupational health and safety management systems - ISO 45001).

Boost helps the client to implement and certify the ISO standard (one or more) by scanning a complete internal business, checking compliance with the legal framework, preparing documentation to demonstrate compliance, and assisting the client to implement the rules of the operating plan. Only then does the selected certification company conducts the certification.

Depending on the number of standards, number of clients working locations and administrative preparedness, duration of all necessary activities is estimated at the very beginning of the project. The client is presented with the project plan including all the steps deadlines and responsible persons (KPI’s). In general, the implementation itself should not last for less than 2 months or longer than 7 months.

Boost suggests to clients a commercial relationship by which most of the contracted funds are charged only upon successful certification. Pricing models and payout intensity are negotiated with each client individually.

Certified institution carries out a 2 year audit of compliance with the standard, and the third year is the so-called recertification year since the standards are changed or upgraded every couple of years.
