BusinessMakeover launches Dutch version of online platform
Businessmakeover powered by ENVISION is an award-winning platform that focuses on inspiring and motivating SMEs in Europe to rethink and change their business models. The results?  Increase growth, visibility and profitability.
In order to further support European competitiveness and job creation, BusinessMakeover challenges (future) entrepreneurs to rethink their business models and adapt them. For this, together with the TUDelft, wwww. Businessmakeover.eu was developed, an easy-to-use and free online platform. Starting points by the creation this platform: SMEs have little time; the tools and videos they need should be easy to find and they should get started right away. No piles of theory books to study, but practical tools and short instructional videos on how bring business model innovation into practice.

Every small or medium sized enterprise or startup, regardless of country, industry or sector, is guided through the website in selecting the right tools for their business makeover. Last year, Businessmakeover received recognition for this set-up by winning the Computable Award for best ICT supplier for SMEs in the Netherlands. The platform is available in 7 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Polish. And from this week also in Dutch!

Already hundreds of thousands of SMEs have found the way to the platform. And for those who want to go deeper into the business model innovation matter, the platform also offers Massive Open Online Courses. Only one year after launching the first Business Modeling course, a small 50,000 students and (future) business owners have already successfully participated in one or more courses.   

During the SME Entrepreneurship Conference at the Beatrix Theater in Utrecht, BusinessMakeover is presented with stand # 23 in the Expozaal. We would like to let SMEs get (further) introduced with her platform and business model innovation. Focus is on showing how business model innovation can help to increase sustainable growth and profitability and how it can be realized in practice. On her stand is a 1 on 1 question desk for personal advice and continuous interactive sessions will take place. During these sessions, you will gain in a practical and quick manner insight into which business models there are and which one fits best with the business of the relevant entrepreneur.
