DCG DEVELOPMENT CONSULTING GROUP (Fonduri-structurale.ro)

For over a decade, DCG DEVELOPMENT CONSULTING GROUP LLC (fonduri-structurale.ro) has been dedicated to offering a full spectrum of services to support the execution of non-reimbursable programs.

Our mission is to assist both mature public and private organizations as well as start-up businesses and social entrepreneurs along their entire journey, from developing essential business skills, managing projects, and getting financial support, to finding capital for growth by using crowdfunding, grants and innovative financial instruments.

The goal is to create an impact-based ecosystem on a national and European level, to provide key tools and resources to all stakeholders:
  • access to funding (grants through fonduri-structurale.ro and participatory funding through our crowdfunding platform – consolid8.ro);
  • access to know-how (mentors and specialists);
  • access to information on impact investing for investors;
  • building support mechanisms for public authorities to support social entrepreneurship and the transition to a green economy;
On our list of achievements in the training area we may recall that in 2018, the company developed a unique training programme for companies in the creative, IT, and automotive industries. More than 400 managers participated in workshops focused on innovation management, product management, business simulation, social innovation, and project management, using the PMI approach.

We are members of the European Association of Innovation Consultants (EAIC) and manage and operate 8 business accelerators (of which two were for social enterprises) providing non-reimbursable funding to over 200 start-ups, of which over 30 are social enterprises.

It is the only Romanian initiative to be awarded in the competition organized by the European Commission Altiero Spinelli Prize for Outreach, competition organised by the European Commission: Spreading Knowledge about Europe (2017). In 2022 DCG DEVELOPMENT CONSULTING GROUP LLC has been nominated on the map of social innovators in Romania (Ashoka Changemaker Map of 2022).

We are working with Ilfov County Council and Măgurele Science Park to create and operate the first Local Green Deal in Romania.
In 2020, we launched consolid8.ro, the first rewards-based crowdfunding platform for social entrepreneurs and creative industries. In 2022 we organized the first edition of the consolid8 festival in Brasov – 3 days of events with more than 2,500 participants discovering innovative products and approaches for a sustainable city, 2023. The second edition of the consolid8 festival will have the European Commission support, as part of a Horizon Europe project.
