    One of my customers once described me as the “grindstone of his thoughts.” This was a great compliment for me, because it reflects how I work with our customers to shape their projects by means of grants and incentives.

    The challenge for me is to make the connection between our customers’ complex projects and grant opportunities. This connection isn’t always apparent. Our talent for this ‘sport’ is an essential component of our success.

  • Wesley Visser, BEc

    Senior Consultant

    What I like particularly, is that I get to see the newest Dutch innovations from up close, and am involved in things that have a positive impact on the world around me. This way, I’m contributing not just on the part of customers, but for the greater good as well.

    I get a kick out of driving past a billboard promoting a product for which I wrote the grant application. In moments like that, you realise that as a consultant you play an important role in realising innovation.

    A front row seat to a wide range of innovations and I’m thrilled to be the one to help those innovators to combine all the different project elements effectively and efficiently.

    I want to make a difference for a sustainable world. If I can convince clients to choose for sustainability using financial incentives or subsidy, than I am working towards that goal.

    Our office is definitely dynamic. Colleagues who walk in and out of the office, work towards deadlines, and everything within the company realm. The pleasant challenge for me is to make everything run smoothly.

About Plus Projects

Plus Projects was founded in 2005 by Marjolein Nijhuis en David Paul Doornbos with the intention not to be the biggest, but to be the best grant and incentives consultancy.

We have evolved into a successful consultancy specialised in innovation and sustainability projects that positively impact the world around us. A consultancy that aspires to build constructive relationships with its clients, and with grant institutions, without losing sight of quality, and with the courage to stick its head out from the crowd. Getting the maximum out of every project is and will always be the formula to our success.

We are proud of all the clients we have advised over the years, and with whom we have built a constructive, personal relationship. This includes the most innovative and sustainability-oriented businesses in The Netherlands; from car manufacturers to record labels to sugar plants. They know they can count on us.

We hope to be of service to you too!

Mission + Vision

Together with our clients we are at the core of complex innovation and sustainability projects, with a positive impact on our society.

It is our mission to strengthen these projects by rendering maximum grant advice. We do this with a personal approach, critically, diligently, and professionally, regarding all the stakeholders involved. This way, we actively contribute to the positive development of the world of tomorrow.

Art Connection

We have a special connection with art. Art is subjective, speaks to the imagination, demands insight and conveys the artists’ ideas. There is common ground with the world of grants, but that is besides the point in this case. Art simply belongs to Plus Projects’ fibre. This will not elude you when you visit our office, and is explicitly woven into our visual identity.
