What is innovative coaching?
It is an educational and information service in which the coach will first analyse the branch, environment and previous experiences of the enterprise and then, in the process of direct cooperation with the entrepreneur, will examine the company’s potential, possibilities and resources in the scope of R+D+I. In terms of analysing the potential of an enterprise, the coach assesses the financial situation, human resources, infrastructure, complexity and reality of innovation. As a result, the coach will present recommendations for the entrepreneur, containing guidelines and paths for the implementation of innovations in the enterprise and will indicate the possibilities of acquiring funds for innovations from the European Union.
