Promising ICT companies supported in new initiative (, 121108)

Born Global is a bid to give top priority to young firms with high growth potential within Information and Communication Technology (ICT), and it’s about developing and improving processes in startup firms by systematically trying to find a scalable business model. Behind this venture are the Center for Business Innovation (CBI), a research center at Chalmers University of Technology carrying out research within innovations and innovation ability, and Innovationsbron. The original idea for the Born Global program comes from Professor Sören Sjölander, active at Chalmers and CBI.
