From the very beginning, NET BIC PORTO
concentrated its efforts in the Soft landing Initiative as they immediately understood the added value of this internationalization service offered to new innovative Portuguese and foreign enterprises through this programme.
Last year they organised a kick-off seminar to launch the SoftLanding club
. The high interest shown by their companies and the high number of requests for contacts and partnerships for several and different markets were constant, even for markets outside Europe, like Brazil.
For this specific Brazilian market, NET became the pioneer BIC in establishing relationships with national and regional Brazilian entities to support Portuguese companies (see other related news
) . The Soft Landing success is not only the work of the outbound BIC and the company, but also the work of the inbound BIC and, last but not least, the work of EBN Soft Landing team.
José Martins, CEO NET BIC Porto
“If we want to take full advantage of this success and achieve even
greater results we need to involve all the BICs, because we are the
largest network of entrepreneurship and innovation with a Quality
System, with a real potential to get partnerships all over the world”.
That is what José Martins, CEO of NET BIC PORTO, declared when receiving the award of the Best SoftLanding Incubator in Lappenranta on last 15 June, on the occasion of EBN 21st Annual Congress which was jointly organised with the 3rd EU-Russia Innovation Forum.
