Clusters, consortiums and collaboration will create opportunities !
« Many Mediterranean start-ups will have to pivot to survive the crisis and scale up. Business clusters can play an important role in developing scale up projects by organising collaboration between members.
This was the case in Morocco, for example, where the CE3M electronics and mechatronics cluster formed a consortium to develop the first artificial ventilator that was 100% made with components from the kingdom » said Abdelkader Betari, president of the Anima Investment Network.
Anima is the lead partner of THE NEXT SOCIETY, which supports among other activities a start-up booster track and a cluster booster track (the latter coordinated by France Clusters) linking European and 7 South Mediterranean countries.
