The service platform ensures that SMEs entering or expanding into a new country are introduced to that country’s business practices and culture most effectively. This is a service that provides a practical solution both to promote existing internationalisation services and to profile growing SMEs looking for international opportunities.
The members of the service platform commit to provide help beyond the traditional business incubation services offered to domestic companies. Those services serve to accelerate foreign companies’ learning processes, help them make contacts in the new country, and provide access to the resources necessary to meet their business goals.
