An important part of the UIC model is the business coaching system where 70 carefully selected individuals from leading positions within commerce and industry guide companies in their business development. Business coaches support newly established corporate management and boards and contribute their knowledge, experience and networks. This broad range of coaching enables UIC to be industry-independent and allows companies to receive professional support from within their specific sector.
UIC also has a network of about 20 specialists, e.g. experts in industrialization with experience of how to progress from prototype to series production.
UIC takes no ownership in its companies and doesn’t rent premises. In this way, UIC can act as a neutral partner.
