Back Innovation architects
Corporate identity: Vision, Mission, Strategy, Values Proactive entrepreneurs are focused on annual growth, but only sustainable growth enables companies to remain successful in the long term. Clarity about the mission, vision, strategy and values are a valuable compass for business operations.
More
Organizational structure: Processes, Activities, Responsibilities Entrepreneurs ask themselves to what extent their company structures are adequate to meet the current challenges. Designing and implementing an effective organizational structure that contributes to the achievement of the organizational goals is an absolute must.

Talent: Leadership, Teams & Individual development MINT supports companies to grow, in a sustainable and people-oriented way. Realizing goals with attention to people and organization is the main theme here.

Back Corporate identity
Proactive entrepreneurs are focused on annual growth, but only sustainable growth enables companies to remain successful in the long term. Sustainable growth plans are based on sound knowledge of their own strengths and weaknesses, and accurately respond to the opportunities and threats in the market. Establishing a vision & mission, embedding the company values and defining the strategic profiling towards customers form the foundations.
The MINT innovation architects are experienced sparring partners in the development of sustainable growth plans for and with the client. Together they work out answers to the questions: What should we achieve with our organization? What are the external and internal priorities of the organization? What are we going for, what do we stand for, what do we do it for?
Back Talent
MINT supports companies to grow, in a sustainable and people-oriented way. Strategic handling of the available Human Resources by reinforcing the employees in their roles, tasks and responsibilities is a must, but not obvious. Based on the vision of the future and the value-creating processes, we work step by step with our client on the implementation of pragmatic and sustainable solutions at team and individual level.
The MINT innovation architects are specialized in developing sustainable solutions with attention for people and organization. Issues that we solve together with our clients are: What kind of organization do we want to be and which leadership style do we need for this? How do we see people working in a result-oriented way? How can we develop our strategic HR policy to support our objectives? How can we best orientate our employees so that they can fully deploy and develop their strengths? Often we also act as a coach for several core profiles in the company.
Back Organization structure
Entrepreneurs ask themselves to what extent their company structures are adequate to meet the current challenges, because the market is evolving very quickly and customers are expecting more and more. When companies want to and/or have to transform according to market trends and customer demands, they often come to the conclusion that their organizational structure is not adequately aligned.
 
The MINT innovation architects think and work together with the clients to make their organization future-proof. Questions that are answered are: What should we achieve with our organization? What are the activities that need to be organized in our company? What kind of organization do we need? How should we divide the activities and decisions into levels, departments and teams?

 
Innovation & Technology
In order to remain competitive in the longer term, entrepreneurs must invest in the development of new or improved products, processes or services.
More
Human Resources Management
Companies must become more and more competitive, while the demand for workable work and flexibility are the challenges on the labour market. The task of HR within organizations evolves from a supporting to a strategic role.
More
Investments & Sustainability
The market is constantly changing and sustainable entrepreneurship requires a permanent focus on its own strategic positioning. A proactive approach is therefore a must.

Back Innovation & Technology
In order to remain competitive in the longer term, entrepreneurs must invest in the development of new or improved products, processes or services. Everyone agrees. This rather defensive innovation strategy often lies at the basis of an innovation program or project, but at MINT we believe that this can also lead to a proactive approach to business innovation, with ground-breaking ambitions for new USPs.
From a business economic perspective, an innovation project is not self-evident, because it implies an uncertain outcome.
The MINT funding experts fully support the clients in acquiring substantial financial support to increase the effectiveness of the innovation projects.
The MINT innovation architects offer support in the development and implementation of the innovation strategy and the structural and planned management of innovation projects. Both SMEs and large companies get the needed boost to move forward.
The MINT funding experts will look for the most suitable subsidy programme and instrument to support your innovation and will work out the application for you and unburden you after approval with subsidy administration and the grant management up to and including the final audit.

Subsidy programmes:
VLAIO; BELSPO; FOD; H2020; FWO, ERDF; ....
 
Subsidy instruments:
Development projects; Research projects; Baekeland; ICON;
Withholding tax exemption for R&D employees; Innovation deduction;
H2020 Collaborative Projects (Research & Innovation Actions and Innovation Actions);
H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie; Eureka; Eurostars, ....
Back Human Resource Management
Companies must become more and more competitive at a time when the demand for workable work and flexibility are the challenges on the labour market. The social legislation is also subject to constant changes. An integral and strategic Human Resources Management is therefore a basic condition for every company that wants to grow. The shift to workable work implies the development of new structures and systems, ideally with more possibilities for autonomy, guidance and competence development from the perspective of the individual employee.
A strong HR policy contributes to the realization of the business strategy and offers a sustainable solution for a too high staff turnover, insufficiently motivated employees or chronic bottleneck vacancies.
The MINT funding experts look for suitable subsidies to support the professionalisation of the organization.
The MINT innovation architects offer support in the development of the foundations of the organization, the structuring of the processes, the development and implementation of an HR strategy and policy and the strengthening of the teams and employees. Both SMEs and large companies are thus strengthening their organization towards further growth.
A proactive HR management is a strategic investment that yields an ROI in the short term, provided that the direct and indirect wage costs are also optimized. The MINT funding experts offer A to Z support in identifying, acquiring and managing grants for personnel and organization. The applicable subsidy programmes and instruments are:
 
Subsidy programmes:
ESF, VLAIO, SME Portfolio
 
Subsidy instruments:
ESF Training support;
ESF Sustainable Career Policy;
ESF Organize Other;
Strategic Transformation Support;
SME Portefeuille
Back Investments & Sustainability
The market is constantly changing and sustainable entrepreneurship requires a permanent focus on its own strategic positioning. A proactive approach is therefore a must. The focus of such strategic exercises is on innovation, the development of extra added value and / or repositioning in the value chain. Internationalization is one of the key words in strategic business development, because the growth in the home market is under pressure in just about all sectors.
The (excessive) dependence of dominant suppliers and / or raw materials, then, put companies back to looking for alternatives themselves.
Independence of volatile market prices, as well as the optimal use of their own competencies or the operation of new markets are just a few of the perspectives for sustainable & strategic business development.
The MINT funding experts are often at the forefront of such strategic transformations, and by means of complementary subsidies they optimize the ROI and the chances of success for the company.
The MINT funding experts use the right resources and subsidies to guide you through your strategic projects and innovations through the demonstration and marketing phase in order to increase success on acceptance and implementation in the market.
Subsidy programmes and instruments that are used for this are:
 
Subsidy programmes:
VLAIO; H2020, SME Instrument; ERDF
 
Subsidy instruments:
Strategic Transformation Support;
SME Growth subsidy;
Ecology premium +; Strategic Ecology Support;
SME Instrument Phase1; SME Instrument Phase 2;
Fast Track 2 Innovation;
ERDF; INTERREG; LIFE +;
Increased Investment Deduction
