WITH SYNERGY OF SUPPORT, SUCCESS OF GROUND-BREAKING FIRMS IS ENSURED

In ICT sector 5 to 7 years are needed in order for the idea to finish in a form of product, while in biosciences the same process lasts from 8 to 12 years


The path from idea to a product on the market is complex, long, and uncertain. The analyses have shown that in ICT sector 5 to 7 years are needed in order for the idea to finish in a form of product, while in biosciences the same process lasts from 8 to 12 years. This period covers research, development, and commercialization. Each process is equally important, and it seeks adequate infrastructure and financial support. So for instance, biosciences require a research and development laboratory in the research period, semiindustrial plant in the development phase, and production plant in the phase of commercialization. Considering the uncertainty in the phase of research and development, seed money, that is, risk capital is invested, while in the phase of commercialization secondary finances are sought by way of business banks or product sale. Business-innovation center of Croatia - BICRO, Ltd. helps in ensuring seed money and risk capital, that is, development of technological infrastructure. However, help does not end here. We have created a consortium with the Croatian Chamber of Economy - Enterprise Europe Network, which promotes the concept of “no wrong door” for entrepreneur.

We closely work with the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Croatian Agency for Small Business in ensuring low-interest loans, factoring for exporters, and other important services which help entrepreneurs and commercialization of products, as well as advancement of production. Finally, only with synergy of support from the Government of the Republic of Croatia optimum success of ground-breaking firms is ensured. Minor innovation in administration is needed, which will ensure success of innovation on the market.
