As part of the European Commission’s BlueInvest Platform, the Readiness Assistance offers a coaching programme for high potential start-ups and SMEs with innovative and sustainable products and solutions for the Blue Economy. Businesses and projects selected for Investment Readiness Assistance will receive coaching packages tailored specifically to their readiness levels and business objectives. The programme has a clear focus on providing business support to help start-ups and SMEs build capacities for growth and attract investment. Up to 200 businesses will be selected to receive coaching tailored specifically to their business objectives. Each participant will be matched with a dedicated business coach, whom they will work with to develop a set of concrete business objectives. Participants will receive targeted assistance from their business coach, who will work with them to achieve their set objectives within a defined timeframe. The one-to-one coaching sessions will be conducted over a 3-month period, both in-person as well as digitally.
Participants will also benefit from additional training through participant-only sessions organised at the BlueInvest Academy, networking and B2B matchmaking sessions at the BlueInvest events. A competitive selection process will be used to select the best candidates for the BlueInvest Readiness Assistance.
