Idea-re helps you finance and realize your business idea

Are you looking for public funding for your company but don’t know where to start? Do you need to redesign your business model but don’t know how to do it? Idea-re is the right partner for you!

Who we are

We are a consulting boutique specializing in accelerating the growth of SMEs and startups. For more than 10 years, our goal has been to help businesses grow and develop by providing active support in two fundamental areas: business model innovation and access to public funding.

Who we serve:

We serve SMEs and startups with a minimum investment budget of €100,000 for innovation projects. We can also support the R&D functions of large companies for research project development.

What we can do for you:

We believe that every project has potential, but sometimes it can be difficult to find the necessary resources to realize your ideas.

That’s where idea-re comes in: we help you define your strategy, identify your financial needs, and find the most suitable public funding opportunities for your business.

We know that every business is unique and different from all others, which is why we put our experience at your service to develop tailor-made solutions for your needs.

Idea-re approach:

Differentiating ourselves from traditional consulting models, we have developed the idea-re approach, based on the application of business innovation to public fund raising processes.

This allows us to design a tailored plan together with you, capable of bringing your project quickly and efficiently from idea to market, reducing costs and obtaining funds more easily.

The idea-re method has been successfully tested by numerous companies and it is based on well-defined steps, from project definition to identification of public funding opportunities, to project validation.




If you are looking for a reliable and experienced partner who can accelerate the growth of your company, idea-re is the solution you have been looking for.

I'm Paolo Franceschini, the founder of idea-re. I help companies and professionals create new growth opportunities. At idea-re, I provide consulting and coaching services, guiding projects from the initial development phase to market entry.
Throughout my career, I have worked with managers from major multinational companies, entrepreneurs, startups, professionals, and students. I have assisted these individuals in discovering and developing new opportunities, often leveraging their own potential and helping them navigate their external or internal market (within a company or organization).
I serve as a coach in various acceleration programs and training courses, both nationally and internationally.
In my free time, I love cooking and creating videos.
