Central Baltic Region Smart City Solutions for Global Cities
Cities play a significant role in our efforts to reduce the effects of global climate change. Smart cities and innovative urban environments will be the main target of investments in e.g. Africa, Asia and South America within the next ten years. The SME2Go project focused on improving the competitiveness of hundreds of identified smart city solution providers in Estonia, Finland and Sweden.
The project brought together SMEs and their knowhow, trained them in sales and marketing skills and provided market intelligence. 10 consortias was formed representing joint offers to target markets by 60 companies. Many companies got a chance to participate on either planning of or an actual export mission to the markets that they would not have been reached without the cross-border collaboration. By the end of the project the first sales for participating companies were achieved and work continued with business leads and contacts
The project supported 163 unique companies and one durable outcome of the project is continuous cooperation among partners to support companies in their efforts to prepare for entry and to enter to the new export markets.
