SMART Innovation Network for New Generation Enterprises

We are i.e.SMART

The Innovation Union Competitiveness Report 2011 states: “European SMEs... do not grow sufficiently. The US has shown a much better capacity to create and grow new companies in research-intensive sectors over the last 35 years”. Therefore: “Think American – Feel European“

 i.e. SMART will set up a permanent SMART transnational management structure that will develop, implement and manage a new approach to innovation and entrepreneurship training in CENTRAL EUROPE.

1. By working within multidisciplinary teams across economic sector-specific borders.

2. By training not only classical business skills, but also transformative business skills such as creativity, empathy, big picture thinking and intuition.

3. By connecting emerging entrepreneurs, business coaches and experts throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

Until the end of 2014, 12 partners from seven urban areas (Bratislava, Budapest, Modena, Prague, Stuttgart, Venice, and Vienna ) will work together towards creating a unique, integrated, sustainable seedbed for innovation and SME growth across CENTRAL EUROPE.
