The interested applicants were asked to address some barriers in developing their business, to provide solutions to overcome the barriers and incentives needed to put in place to stimulate the growth of innovative companies, and to name a success story. A debate around the proposals was also encouraged. The applications received were from Lithuania and Latvia and they addressed the funding issue namely the difficulty to have seed investment and the difficulty to raise funds. Therefore they consider that creating a positive environment for entrepreneurs in Europe should be a priority.
