SMEBOOK is a new open innovation platform which aims to match companies with recommended partners – both companies and supporting organisations, such as clusters, academia/research organisations, policy makers, financial intermediaries and consultancy firms.
The SME first signs up for a free user account and is then invited to personalise their profile, e.g. by adding information on their current product lines and anticipated markets. The user then carries out a research query for compatible partners and the system, using a bespoke classification algorithm combined with advanced machine learning techniques, makes a match. The platform also brings SMEs into contact with organisations which can support tech companies to enhance their business potential.
The platform has been developed by Q4I Consulting, a Spanish technology-based SME from Madrid, which aims to offer differentiated innovation services to the tech industry across Europe.
