The EU4Digital Facility has developed a guidebook for the design of ICT entrepreneurial ecosystem builder organisation(s) for the development and support of local ICT innovation entrepreneurial ecosystems in the six Eastern partner countries.
The guide provides information on the actions that should be implemented to establish and empower ecosystem builders.
According to this guide, the ICT ecosystem enablers (educators, investors, facilitators and connectors) in the Eastern partner countries are performing at a lower level in comparison to EU countries in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) because there are few or no ecosystem builder organisations in the region.
The Guide makes a key recommendation: policy makers should develop and coordinate the implementation of an action plan to empower entrepreneurial ICT ecosystems, primarily by establishing and supporting ecosystem-building organisations.
