History of RegioConsult

2001 - today.

History

Our company has been present on the Romanian market since 2001. Established in this year as a grants and investments consultancy company, the main objective of RegioConsult has been to support the small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) in their efforts to increase efficiency and become prepared to meet the new EU quality standards. To achieve this objective, RegioConsult offered high level consultancy services to both domestic and foreign investors, in the field of grants and incentives, as well as training programs.

Within 2003-2004, RegioConsult began to support its Clients, Romanian SMEs and large companies, as well as Hungarian multinational enterprises, to implement their first public – funded investment projects. The value of the grants awarded has continuously increased, from EUR 10 million between 2005 and 2006, to EUR 20 million, in 2007, which positioned RegioConsult as one of the leading companies in the field of management consulting services. The success rate for the projects submitted and implemented within the period 2001 to 2007 was of 96%.

In September 2008, PNO, Europe’s leading full service independent grant consultancy took over RegioConsult. The joint portfolio of PNO Romania and RegioConsult included more than 100 projects funded through pre-accession funds (SAPARD, PHARE, ISPA), structural funds (SOP HRD, SOP IEC, ROP) and other European and local funds (FEADR, AFM, ANIMMC, Corvinus, etc.)

In 2011 the management team through a buyout detached from the international network and continues the work with its multidisciplinary team with expertise in the areas of economy and finance, marketing, sociology, political sciences and law. Under the auspices of the new legal frame of Regional Consulting and Management ltd., in partnership with PNO, our consultants identify and monitor all project calls which are opened by the management authorities of the grant schemes. In close collaboration with our clients, we use our knowledge and expertise to match the available funding programs with the client’s specific needs, business objectives and projects.  The joint number of our successful projects reached 200 in this year.
