The TechArt Voucher is intended for small and medium-sized companies with headquarters or operations in the Moravian-Silesian region that want to increase their market share or enter new markets by re-designing an existing product. Also, if they wish to diversify their risk and reduce their dependence on supply and customer chains by creating a completely new product. The maximum amount of support can reach up to CZK 450 000.
