Micro-Entrepreneurship Center of Excellence MicroENTRE at the University of Oulu is looking for partners to create a network of digital platforms to support sustainable business growth of micro-enterprises.
Our aim is to create the EU’s leading digital platform network supporting sustainable business growth of micro-enterprises. The platform builds a path to the EU’s Digital Single Market.
This is necessary because…
Globally changing working life creates new forms of solo- and micro-entrepreneurship (~94 % of the companies) that are currently poorly studied and understood.
Micro-enterprises form a heterogenic group with varying needs for support, digitalization and business partners.
Due to a lack of resources and competence gaps, only few micro-enterprises reach sustainable growth without new digitalized solutions.
First, creating a network of digital platforms that supports sustainable business development and growth in micro-enterprises.
Second, the platform offers digital solutions to support micro-entrepreneurs in the daily decision-making, operation and cross-border partnership.
Third, the platform offers virtual reality collaboration between micro-entrepreneurs all over EU.
And finally, it will provide evidence-based knowledge for decisionmakers.
