Business student wanted for basic internet research on business incubation/universities active in SME growth
I am based in the UK and need some help with very basic research - ideally you're a business student, undergraduate or graduate, with interest in innovation and entrepreneurship. I am looking to gain a very basic overview of the university incubation start-up space in the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Finland and Sweden and need some names etc This isn't very complicated only needs to be in English, you can choose how long ideally the shorter the better! I am trying to potentially identify universities/partners that I may approach for joint collaboration projects from the UK in the ICT space.
I need to know:
- the top 5 business incubators/universities with successful start-up growth in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Germany and the Netherlands - where possible the key name/email of either the business incubation manager and/or the person within the university that deals with relationships for EU joint funding bids on FP7 Framework 7 ICT and with Future Internet issues in Horizon 2020
- the top 5-10 investors (private equity)/Venture capital firms and if applicable crowd-funding initiatives in those countries please focus on Germany and Sweden first then the rest
- any government initiatives or industry to do with Internet of Things/People/Services
We are a UK based SME accelerator affiliated to UK university looking to potentially create joint EU bids with partners on EU Horizon 2020 initiatives - specifically on Future Internet on Internet of Things/People/Services - we are interested in understanding the basic start-up eco-system support and key names
