Project Summary

Internationalization is becoming critical for an increasing number of European academic spin-offs and start-ups. Managers of these organizations are in a key position to effectively and strategically deal with the new challenges of the globalization of markets. The GLOBAL-SPIN project aims to develop an innovative and inclusive training tool for managers of academic spin-offs and start-ups on transnational entrepreneurship, based in a new approach to corporate learning and using web and tablet technologies, to provide the knowledge, skills and resources needed for these professionals to implement effective strategies of internationalization in their ventures. The new tool will be tested and validated in a sample of European academic spin-offs and start-ups working in different sectors of activity (more than 100). Moreover, in order to maximize the impact and sustainability of the final outcomes, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) (as well as other Open Education Resources, OER) based on the corporate learning programme on transnational entrepreneurship will be designed to be shared in main European digital repositories directed to all European entrepreneurs. Finally, the consortium foresees to create a Transnational Entrepreneurs Forum (TEF) at European level which will act as a independent group composed by leading transnational entrepreneurs aimed to inspire others entrepreneurs by sharing views on what needs to be done for transnational entrepreneurs and to support the implementation of the Commission’s transnational entrepreneur initiatives.As a main result, the consortium expects to give a contribution to an increase on the European academic spin offs´ competitiveness by supporting these organizations to deal effectively with the challenges of markets´ globalization, supporting them in the decisions taking affecting two internationalization strategies: a) the commercialization of new products and services abroad and b) the competition, attraction and recruitment of global talent.
