The Business Accelerator Program’s, BAP, purpose is to allow focus on one region, in one industry during a limited amount of time. This enables a strategic work for the industry and its trade opportunities between the U.S. and Sweden.
In 2006-2007 the first Business Accelerator Program was carried out in South Sweden and resulted in new contacts, exchanges and success for the participants. An example of this is the successful collaboration between the City of Växjö and Savannah, GA as well as the establishment of Swedish companies in the area of Michigan, among others the Swedish Biogas International AB.
The 2010-2011 years BAP was established in the Western Part of Sweden, Västra Götalandsregion. This project was developed in partnership with SACC-USA, Västra Götalandsregionen, Business Region Göteborg and Ecoex with focus on the Clean Tech industry. With the Business Accelerator Program it was possible to highlight the Västra Götaland region’s excellent and well developed industry within the Clean Tech area.
