For some time now, Dr. Vijay K. Verma has been involved in various funding projects and financings. What I particularly like about him is the professional approach, the clear communication and his positive, friendly nature. I have dealt with many funding consultants, but with ’The Funding Expert’ I am sure that I will get the best results. I can warmly recommend working with the team around Dr. Verma.

I completed an FFG funding application with Dharma Funding Solutions. The first meeting as well as the complete application process was very swift and smooth. The nice, welcoming office and the friendly team made the cooperation very enjoyable. I felt understood and will work on future funding applications with Dharma Funding Solutions again.

As a start-up founder you need to make R&D, legal, HR, administration, accounting, marketing, sales, financing, etc. etc. The most important aspect is the financials of your young company – if this aspect is not given at any time the start-up will fail. Therefore, we couldn’t be more happy to be assisted by Vijay concerning all aspects of finances (public funding and private equity). Thank you for your great work, I am looking forward to our cooperation to come.

Doro Turbinen GmbH

Der Alltag eines Unternehmers ist geprägt von einer eigentlich nie abzuarbeitenden To-Do Liste. Man neigt dazu den Fokus von wesentlichen Aufgaben wie Strategie und Leadership zu verlieren und in operative Tasks einzutauchen.

Mit Dr. Vijay Kumar Verma habe ich einen Partner gefunden, der mich im sehr zeitaufwendigen Bereich Förderwesen massiv entlastet. Der für das Unternehmen selbst noch viel größere Mehrwert liegt zudem im spezifischen Wissen und seiner Erfahrung aus unzähligen Projekten. Mit seiner Unterstützung konnten wir die Erfolgsquote unserer Einreichungen deutlich steigern – und das ist letztendlich das Wichtigste.

ARTI GmbH: ARTI. Autonomous robot technology GmbH

Through the cooperation and advice of Vijay and his team, the speed and execution of business plans could be decisively increased.

The final results were very promising and helped our company to better position itself in the market and open new business channels. As a young company, a high standard of quality is of crucial importance for us, as this is what sets us apart from comparable competing solutions.

In addition, our domain is usually difficult to understand and accessible for other professional fields. DFS has been able to provide us with additional assistance in this area.
