Brussels, Belgium, 22 September 2015 – EBN, the Brussels-based innovation network, expands to China, Canada and India with the official opening of three local representatives. Innovative start-ups and SMEs can now safely grow their businesses into new markets, with the guaranteed quality of support offered by the EU|BIC (Business and Innovation Centre) label in Europe.
Welcoming the agreements, David Tee, Head of Membership Services at EBN, said:“EBN is well established in Europe, and Europe remains our core market. However, with the continued growth of the globalised economy, it is important that we help innovative start-ups and SMEs to internationalise via our network of EU|BICs. The launch of our first International Representatives outside Europe will provide a trusted path for members’ clients to go global.”.
These three new EBN overseas representatives, will act as EBN's local offices in China, Canada and India. They are the first point of contact for organisations within the country who are interested in EBN’s support services, membership, technical training and assistance. Leveraging their local knowledge, EBN Representatives will be responsible for promoting the uptake of the EU|BIC Quality label to stakeholders within their territory. Furthermore, they will also be the first point of contact for other EBN members who wish to access these markets, including through regular ‘innovation tours’. EBN China will be led by WiTTC, EBN Canada by Réseau Technovation, and EBN India by Global Business Inroads (GBI).
