Today's IST projects need to be tomorrow's commercial successes. But
often, the individuals and organisations who develop advanced technology do not know how
to change their good results into profitable start-ups, joint ventures or new profit
centres in established companies.
TRAIN-IT helps participants, in current or finished projects, to become entrepreneurs.
The project runs intensive five day training that shows how to write a winning business
plan. Financial instruction continues with the acquisition and application of venture
capital and start up techniques. The course also includes market research and selling.
TRAIN-IT will help participants to obtain and use capital and offers follow-up care from
TRAIN-IT's pool of experts.
TRAIN-IT involves partners from Germany, France, Denmark and Finland and is expected to
lead up to 30 new IT companies in its two-year-life.
