Our mission is to help you improve our region – and the world beyond – through innovation.
DO YOU HAVE A NEW IDEA or technology – or a new combination of old technologies – with the potential to solve a problem or hit a market sweet spot? Every year we work with more than 100 entrepreneurs and help as many of them as possible to build internationally successful enterprises. Our professional business advisors have knowledge and experience relevant to your idea and market. We will help you find out if your idea has potential – and, if so, how to make it the next big thing.
WE PROVIDE EXCLUSIVE help to entrepreneurs who demonstrate strong progress, offering you a specialist business advisor with an industry-specific network. The business advisory always starts with an hour where you, together with one of our business advisors, analyse the immediate priorities and business needs. Send us an email at email@example.com with your question or challenge to get started right away.
Innovation Skåne business advisors all have general startup and commercial expertise, as well as individual specialist skills – in the in the mobile/telecom, IT, digital media, cleantech and life science sectors.
OUR ADVISORS will help you with business strategy, finding investors and pilot customers, technical support, recruitment, IPR strategy and expansion. They will introduce you to our experts in human resources and team recruitment, patents and licensing, legal issues, marketing and financing.
Ultimately, it’s up to the market to decide if your business idea is viable. But we will do our very best to support you all the way.
FROM DAY ONE, we will welcome you into our large international network. We work closely with investors and pilot customers, as well as all the established providers of start-up support and business facilitation. This means you can add our services to existing sources of support like business incubators, university innovation offices, business angels and mentors.
OUR SERVICES to innovators and entrepreneurs are free of charge and funded by our owner, Region Skåne, other governmental agencies and our industry partners.
WHAT WE DON’T DO: We don’t invest money in your company, we don’t lend you money, or buy shares of your company. We can help you find suitable first customers or investors. We don’t judge your idea, we help you find out what the intended market thinks. We won’t decide for you or do your job, we will however be a sounding board to you and offer our experiences from similar situations. We might even help you see greater possibilities with your idea than you imagined. (Other rules apply for Ideas from within Region Skåne)
We are 10 business advisors who work to help over 100 entrepreneurs a year. Together we have about 200 years of business experience and thousands of relevant contacts.
