ICT Cluster is a memeber of ACHIEVE MORE Partnership, a joint project funded by the European Commission under Europe INNOVA KIS-Platform11/27/2008
From 27th November 2008 Bulgarian ICT Cluster is a member of The ACHIEVE MORE Partnership. The project is a platform for collaboration of early stage investors, 50 EU business and technology incubators and 15 clusters specialising in accelerating the growth of knowledge intensive service companies in the ICT sector.
ACHIEVE MORE is being developed as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme of the European Commission by nine partners: St John's Innovation Centre (UK), EuConnect Ltd (UK), EBN (Belgium), Innovationsbron (Sweden), Finance Tree (UK), UKBI (UK), Institute for Work & Technology (Germany), Gate Garchinger (Germany) and CERAM Sophia Antipolis Business School (France).
The main ambition of the Partnership is to accelerate growth of knowledge-intensive service SMEs via a new platform called the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Exchange (EIX) that enables its partners to actively:
* Exchange know-how, expertise and better practice in leading-edge incubation
* Learn about innovative coaching tools and methodologies that are proven to accelerate start-up growth globally, whether developed by a member of the network or an organisation outside the Partnership
* Experiment with new models for seed funds attached to incubators and clusters
