Transfer to the Next Generation
The enterprise transfer to the next generation, belonging to the enterprise accelerator’s operation, is a way for a controlled transfer of the enterprise from an experienced entrepreneur to a younger one and from one generation to another. The concept serves both a student and a veteran entrepreneur.
In the process connected with the transfer to the next generation, SAMK’s students educate themselves to be continuators of already operating enterprises. The process gives the opportunity for the student to train oneself into a specialist of entrepreneurship for an enterprise already existing. The process does not require the student to be an entrepreneur already during the study time, but the actual enterprise transfer to the next generation can take place in a longer period of time.
The enterprise can belong to the student’s immediate circles or be an outside enterprise looking for a continuator for its business. The student’s participation in the enterprise transfer to the next generation is included in the degree. The student gets wide support for operating as an entrepreneur.
In addition to SAMK’s research and education experts, the mentors are specialists of processes of enterprise transfers to the next generation.
The cooperation can be deepened also e.g. within R&D projects, when the entire enterprise operation is developed for future challenges with expert assistance.
