Number of institutions in the Austrian Alpine area of Tirol, including the Management Center Innsbruck (MCI), have joined forces to establish the alliance ‘Startup Tirol’ that will foster entrepreneurial activity and network in the region. This new initiative is expected to act as a powerhouse for MCI in its implementation of the EEE Project activities and reinforcement of the entrepreneurial practices among target groups.
In late February the key actors from the public and private sector in the Tyrolean entrepreneurship ecosystem have founded a regional alliance called ‘Startup Tirol’. This alliance comprises the Regional Development Agency (Standortagentur Tirol), the Chamber of Commerce in Tyrol, the University of Innsbruck, the Management Center Innsbruck (MCI), I.E.C.T. – The Institute for Entrepreneurship Cambridge – Tirol, the Werkstätte Wattens, and a number of individuals.
This alliance will be the coordinating umbrella for all activities of the involved actors with respect to entrepreneurship awareness and support. In this context, EEE Project is no exception to gain benefits from the initiative. Development of the Innsbruck Regional Alliance and the EEE entrepreneurship teaching modules are taking place in coordination with Startup Tirol, which serves as a secure ground for the envisaged project outcomes to be achieved.
