Achieve More
The ACHIEVE MORE Partnership is a collaboration of early stage investors, 50 EU business and technology incubators and 15 clusters specialising in accelerating the growth of knowledge intensive service companies in the ICT sector.

Over the next 2 years the Partnership will build an Entrepreneurship and Innovation Exchange (EIX) – an innovative and highly focused business support platform that will enable its partners to:
• Exchange know-how, expertise and better practice in leading-edge incubation
• Learn about innovative coaching tools and methodologies that are proven to accelerate start-up growth globally
• Experiment with new models for seed funds attached to incubators and clusters

The Benefits

Through the EIX the ACHIEVE MORE Partnership will deliver a practical means of enhancing early stage business support, with partners getting access to a continuous process of improvement that will place them in a leadership position in the EU in incubation and cluster management.

The Partnership will also provide access to tested business acceleration tools, which meet strategic and practical needs to understand and support a start-up product development, discovery of profitable markets, building core team capabilities and assessing investment readiness.
