Born Global is a development program designed for young Swedish startup companies with estimated big growth potential. The purpose is to increase the prerequisites of profitable growth and speed up the creation of a scalable business. Participating Born Global companies get support in finding suitable customer segments, product/service offerings, business models and team organization. All this is done using a process that CBI has developed together with researchers from Stanford and a number of entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. Just as new products and services need to be tested, the business model of a new company needs to be developed and verified; Business Prototyping. In parallel with the development of the participating companies a research program is connected to Born Global for further development of the process.
The Born Global companies are nominated by a selected group of Serial Entrepreneurs, Venture Capitalists and Investment Managers that in particular have good knowledge about young Swedish startups.
