Developing a model for a national incubation vertical in the energy sector

ISEA together with Triathlon designed a national model for a public support system in the energy sector.


A public organization in the energy sector, and part of a European framework for collaboration, needed to expand its operations outside the Stockholm – Uppsala region. The challenge was to expand the organization’s reach without incurring significant increases in operational costs.


The ISEA / Triathlon team utilized in-depth knowledge of incubation networks and made a survey of similar approaches to national verticals in other segments. The analysis revealed several potential challenges that needed to be addressed. The collected data and experiences were processed and a model for a national vertical was presented. This included a list of potential cooperation organizations and a road map for implementing the model. 


ISEA / Triathlon proposed a model based on regional operating partners, working predominantly on success-fee base remuneration. This ensured a cost-effective roll-out in combination with a good geographical coverage. A proposal of initial specific cooperation partners was also included. The Implementation of the new model has now been initiated.
