Strategic Plan for the Fostering of Entrepreneurship in the Azores 2013-2016
Approved on the 27th of March, 2013, the Strategic Plan for the Fostering of Entrepreneurship in the Azores 2013-2016 aims to provide the Region with a set of coherent and coordinated measures, intended to act upon the main structuring factors of the promotion of entrepreneurial activity.
This Plan’s first objective is to create, in the Azores, an entrepreneurial-friendly environment, involving Government, businesses, organizations from the regional scientific and technological system, the educational system and the civil society, each acting in a coordinated fashion in their field, in such a way that that promotes entrepreneurial activity and maximizes the resulting socioeconomic effects.
The Strategic Plan aims also to recognize the importance of entrepreneurship in the promotion of innovation and business competitiveness, and establish the Azores as a particularly favourable region for entrepreneurship, as a tool capable of enhancing the required creativity for economic development.
