Entrepreneurship & Startup Support

Professional assistance to entrepreneurs covering the full-range of startup-development topics. Helping organizations to create and implement meaningful entrepreneurship support and development programmes

Some of the challenges entrepreneurs face:

  • Lack of clarity and need for guidance on how to prioritize tasks and structure activities when creating a venture and further aspects of growth (team, business contacts)
  • Questions on how to raise capital: pitch-deck preparation and finding the access to the right funding source, would it be an angel, VCs or a grant
  • Scaling to new markets or relocating headquarters, which requires practical know-how of business environment and market conditions in those markets 

Some of the challenges organizations supporting entrepreneurship face:

  • A need to attract potential entrepreneurs, to find the right partners and new promising startups early on
  • A challenge of managing the startup ecosystem or a number of entrepreneurs at the same time
  • Integrating own pipeline of startups or own initiative within startup ecosystem or globally

Some of the challenges corporations willing to tap into startup scene face:

  • Creation of entrepreneurship culture, process and developing spin-offs 
  • Organization of non-formal, creative environment of a startup community for own employees
  • Creation of own Venture Capital arm and full-immersion into the startup ecosystem, scouting, selection and management of startups that suit corporation’s needs
