DeepTech innovations are expected to deliver transformative solutions for global challenges. A
strong supply of DeepTech startups boosts innovation. Increased innovation in the economy
provides better solutions for future crises. Inspiring potential startup founders and introducing
skills development at the preincubation stage the Toolbox increases their chance for market

entrepreneurship such as business support organisations, sectoral agencies, higher education
and research institutions. The toolbox is made available for other regions and technology
The activities include stakeholder needs analysis, joint preparation of workshops piloting the
end solution, developing a final form of a toolbox based on the findings and providing wide
dissemination of project results. Toolbox development will involve stakeholders feedback at
all stages ensuring high efficiency and applicability of tools. Real testimonials, interactions and
role playing will be used to empower students to gain valuable insights and personal
experience. Toolbox implementation will prepare S/R to initiate business in any region and to
cooperate transnationally.
