Tegra´s key of success is a constant close client cooperation where mutual feedback always is encouraged. One great case led to a multi grant funding (four approved applications) to a company!
After a few fruitful face to face meeting the client decided to go for Tegra´s recommendation of well suited grants.

The process continued with “cultivation” of existing business and project input from the client combined with research from Tegra, which formed the application. Brief discussions and reviews was executed regularly. After 6-8 weeks of hard effort by optimizing all findings including final reviews, the applications were submitted.
After some weeks authority decisions arrived with positive outcomes, resulting in major financial contribution to Tegra´s client.

The work was summarized in reports by Tegra provided to the client and then further distributed to the concerned companies. With the purpose of shaping the companies´ social media communication strategy and improving its performance compared to key rivals.
