Regions

Entrepreneurial development for regions. Entrepreneurial System for regional use. A complete system with tools, processes, and development-units to be implemented at several places which creates common understanding of users. Users are universities, university of applied sciences, gymnasiums and incubators, plus authorities.

 

Municipalities

Municipalities in remote areas, with perhaps scarce innovation capacities and resources can use the system to accelerate existing SME, and to train individuals for becoming entrepreneurs and more. A turnkey solution for kick-starting entrepreneurial action.

Consortia

For organizations to develop their intrapreneurial skills, work together, and with ideas to create networks across boarders - we actively build consortia for pulling entrepreneurial training forward - in a wider perspective. We have helped develop several consortia in the Baltic Sea Area.

Splintermind has always been a Social Entrepreneurship Company. In Arts, Artistic or now,  focused on Entrepreneurship and Innovation. It is not that far from the Arts to Entrepreneurship.

Re-think

I could easily argue that early processes of entrepreneurship is artistic and should even use artistic approaches and methods for maximizing an idea.

Artists and Entrepreneurs has more in common than the "administrators" of a business. Yet many Universities educate students to perform "Business and Administration". We need to re-think.

We also need to re-think when it comes to Regional Development - if we want to use entrepreneurial action. It is easy said - but hard to accomplish. Especially if it will be performed by authorities that usually "administrates". Why is that ? Probably because entrepreneurial actions is a bottom-up movement and most development actions are top-down.

These two facts was observed, when performing research in the field of Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Many wants to accomplish "entrepreneurship", but there is a gap between theory and practice on one hand, and administration and "action" on the other. For that we need structures and creativity, but in new ways. We need to re-think.

Focus

That is the focus of Splintermind - Structured Creativity. We are a social entrepreneurship company. We intend to fill that gap. We enable training of entrepreneurship and innovation processes.

Philosophy

An Entrepreneur is the first mover - therefore it requires an ethical responsibility.
