The aim of the project is to help you to validate your business idea and test its commercial potential. The goal is for you to learn if it is worth investing your time and energy in your idea. Your idea can be both a product or a service. We can fund your test activities with up to 50,000 sek.
The following are some questions that the grant could help you answer:
Support for testing your idea through UPMF is free of cost.
WHAT ACTIVITIES CAN WE SUPPORT?
Uppsala Product Market Fit is run by UIC, Almi, Hera Hub, Capsule, Drivhuset, Innovation Akademiska and STUNS Energi. Examples of activities we can fund include customer surveys, market research, technology tests, patent strategies or other. The result from your test activities will work as help when you design your roadmap for your future business development. UPMF is funded by Vinnova.
If you are unsure about how to test your idea or if you need support in developing it before applying – please contact us and we will help you!
WHO CAN APPLY?
The validation grant is meant for you who has not yet started a business (AB or enskild firma), or students/employees at the university. If you are unsure about whether or not you qualify, please feel free to contact us!
HOW DO I APPLY?
You can receive a grant of up to 50,000 sek, meant for one or more validation activities. You need to attach a quotation from the company performing the validation activity. Contact us if you need help finding potential providers. You can only apply for one activity per application and submit only one application at a time.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Your application is usually processed within two weeks and you will then receive our decision and further instructions. Please note that validation activities can not be initiated before your application has been approved.
When an activity is completed and reported to us is it possible to submit a new application. You can then apply to use the remaining amount up to 50,000 sek.
The project is running until March 2019.
