Services for SMEs


During the 6-month acceleration period our SMEs received mentorship, in-house support, dedicated events, media promotion and access to an international network.


Additionally, we foster the wider open data ecosystem, by offering a number of resources such as training material, tools and reports. The topics covered were very broad, from how to use open data, tips to starting a business or where to find office space.
