Future Internet Business - Incubation and Growth for the FI PPP programme
Start date: Jul 1, 2014,
End date: Jun 30, 2016
The project "Future Internet Business – Incubation and Growth for the FI PPP programme" (FI Business) will provide business support to developers, web-entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs building applications and services on top of Future Internet technologies developed in the 1st and 2nd phase of the FI-PPP programme. FI Business will help them to identify business opportunities, to further develop their business and to facilitate their access to finance. After an initial assessment of entrepreneurs' maturity and their particular needs, they will receive tailor-made training and coaching as well as access to regional innovation ecosystems and to the financial community along the three parallel modular tracks "pre-incubation", "incubation" and "acceleration". Each of these tracks delivers a standardised set of onsite and online training, coaching and matchmaking services according to entrepreneurs' specific needs. Besides, the FI Business project will provide a standardised set of virtual secondary services such as legal, tax and HR services as well as a software package which will allow entrepreneurs concentrating on the core of their business development. By doing so, the overall goal of FI PPP – namely internet enabled innovation in Europe – will be achieved and materialised into a sustainable integral part of EU economy and society.
