Being an EU|BIC is an exciting way to accelerate PPNT’s development. The opportunities that come with the network of organisations involved in supporting startups are truly worth exploring!
Stojan Gorup
CEO of EU|BIC Sezana
The EU|BIC quality mark criteria most of all they give us the possibility to improve our functioning as we have now the possibility to benchmark our results with other EU|BICs. The EU|BIC quality assessment helped us to think about our own expectations in terms of performances and internal organisation. Within the framework of the Slovene Technology Parks and Incubators Association we are putting much effort to advocate for a better regulation of the industry, and the criteria provide us much help to frame this action coherently.
