Creating a network of experts
Creating a network of experts
Bringing entrepreneurs together with experts and mediating consultations or mentoring is an essential service provided by innovation agencies. By sharing contacts among innovation agencies, we provide a lot wider range of know-how, so our clients may get the very support they need. Through sharing examples of good practice we help entrepreneurs find a new direction and a new perspective of the world around.
Interconnecting start-ups and corporations
Interconnecting start-ups and corporations
We bring together leaders with leaders. Thanks to long-term relations with entrepreneurs from all over the country we know very well who is looking for technology or software solutions and who is working on them as well. Through interconnecting companies and institutions across regions, the clients of innovation agencies may join the projects or selection procedures they would have never learnt about otherwise.
Bringing businesses and investors together

Investors often want to invest into specific types of businesses, and lots of businesses are looking for investors. Using a shared network covering most of our country, we can help both the investors and entrepreneurs find their ideal matches.

Innovation centres are continuously evolving, inspiring each other by their achievements and learning from each other’s mistakes. This way, we can more efficiently implement new services or solve unforeseen problems.

What our cooperation looks like

Through long-term partnerships with entrepreneurs as well as experts from a wide range of branches, we support the development of regional innovation ecosystems. Thanks to the interconnected regional innovation centres, we leverage the synergies among these ecosystems in order to cultivate the business environment across the Czech Republic and improve its competitiveness.
