How do we do it?

  • 01 Self-assessment

    Each interested SME will fill in a profile and fill in a customised self-assessment questionnaire that helps assessing its investment readiness.

  • 02 Assessment by clusters

    Following the self-assessment made by the SME itself, an assessment will be done by the associated cluster to which the SME is related, and another assessment will be made by a second cluster (or an appointed expert)

  • 03 Action plan

    Finally, the two clusters will define together with the SME, based on the three assessments, an action plan with services to be taken by the SME to improve its investor readiness.
