SMB Assessment

SMB Assessment

You are a young company in the region Nijmegen that wants to grow up as fast as possible. Where are you today? And what action is needed to grow to a mature business organization? SMB Life Sciences offers you an assessment to get the answers to these questions by a Venture Health Check resulting in a tailor-made advice report. For the complete program we ask a contribution of 600 Euro per venture (younger than 5 years!) to cover part of the costs.

Venture Health Check
BusinessModel -  Bell MasonThe venture health check will use a venture development framework that is based on ‘best practices’ in venturing. The assessment will not only tell you how you are doing, but also gives recommendations for you and your venture on issues, such as:

  • the characteristics of your venture (how disruptive are you?);
  • your ‘age’, i.e. at which stage is your venture;
  • your achievements and your areas for improvement;
  • how you act as an entrepreneur, using the five principles of effectuation. 

The assessment will be conducted by Corina Kuiper and Fred van Ommen – both experts in venturing and entrepreneurship – and will focus on your entire business; including the market, your offering, the people, partners & organization and your business model. It will take a limited amount of your time:

  • an intake interview (0,5 -1 hour);
  • an in-depth interview of 3 hours;
  • a feedback session (1 hour) to discuss the report you will receive.

All the information will be treated confidential and the report is for your eyes only.

This assessment is part of the coaching and support portfolio aimed at innovative entrepreneurs, companies younger than 5 years and connected to Nijmegen region. It is an ideal tool to make an inventory of your needs for specific expertise. After the assessment SMB can offer you tailor-made coaching and support. Thanks to the European Regional Development Fund (EFRO) SMB Life Sciences can cover most of the costs of this assessment. Therefore, we only ask a contribution of €600,= per venture (more than 1 person per venture can participate).
