The SMEBOOK Platform

The opportunity

 

The value chain is no longer a linear process

 

Cross-sectoral collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship increasingly reconfigure industrial value chains

 

Value chains in the 4.0 Industry are more collaborative than ever

 

Collaboration among tech companies is not enough.
Identification of convenient business models is a necessity


The problem

 

Scattered knowledge and untapped capacities of technological markets

 

Traditional value chains are not agile and flexible enough to satisfy the rapid market growth

 

Differentiation of new products and services from the competition is challenged by the global economy and the massive use of ICT

 

What is SMEBOOK?

A business-intelligence based platform providing tech companies with tailored recommendations to find best partners and interplay with supporting entities
