Just back from facilitating at the EU-initiative Incubator Forum in beautiful Ljubljana in Slovenia. An event part of the Gate2Growth programme where incubators from all over Europe meeting to share best practices. Interesting discussions and wonderful to see that the new EU-countries really wants to participate in creating the new Europe! From the innovation perspective it seems like the Eastern countries like the southern ones needs to let go of some academical and patriarchal structures before they can really get the free entrepreneurial spirit going. But they are on their way!
