News Date Added

MPowerBIO is here to help you enhance your expertise and capacity in delivering tailored support to bioeconomy SMEs looking for access to capital!

For that purpose the MPowerBIO project has produced a Replication Guide and Toolkit, encompassing actionable knowledge along with hints, tips and tools on how to adapt and adopt the MPowerBIO Business Support Services and Capacity Building programme to your services.

The Business Support Services were designed by MPowerBIO for SMEs in the bio-based sector, with a view to helping them attract investments to develop their projects and grow. The services comprise the Business Support Programme and the Investment Readiness Level Assessment service, as well as a number of training events and pitching competitions to help the SMEs get hands-on knowledge and experience in pitching in front of an investor. 

The Capacity Building Programme offers practical help to cluster representatives engaged in supporting businesses in the bio-based sector to enhance their skills, resources and services to better support their SMEs in business development and access to finance. 

In essence, the training programme aimes at providing clusters with the logic behind, as well as the knowledge and tools, for assessing the investment readiness of their SME members and identifying the gaps to achieve high IRL, reviewing the business model of an SME and building a credible investment case, selecting the right investors, helping SMEs to pitch and manage investor relations, and advising on financial strategy and planning.
