Supercluster Capital Strategy Map

Innovation Clusters and Superclusters are on the rise around the world. But to be succesful, these innovation clusters need to develop solid capital strategies. Few of them have significant experience in this field.  This brings up questions like: How can an Innovation Supercluster build a capital strategy? How can a innovation cluster think strategically about capital? How can a cluster map out and understand the capital landscape?

The Supercluster Capital Strategy Map allows clusters, cluster managers and key stakeholders answer these questions and develop a global capital strategy.


3 Outcomes
from Using
the Supercluster Capital Strategy Map

Understand How Risk Capital Works

In our work with ecosystems and clusters, few people truly understand how private risk capital works, and how it can be utilized for success across the ecosystem. From active business angels, Corporate Venture, small venture funds and beyond, the Supercluster Capital Strategy Map helps you to learn the basics.

Go Beyond Your Home Turf

Many eco-systems and cluster programs tend to reach out to a handful of local investors, and stop there. That is a big mistake. The Capital Strategy Map invites you to explore investor opportunities beyond your home turf.


Build a Solid Capital Strategy

Most clusters would like to attract more investments, but their current approach can best be summarized as “hope”. By truly putting work into the Capital Strategy Map; learn it, build on it, implement programs, networks, hire people with clear responsibilities and metrics, training the core team and key stakeholders in the Capital Strategy Map; by doing this you build and implement a strategy, not just a hope.

Snapshot: Clean Energy

The Norwegian Solar Cluster has ambitions to build a truly global Innovation Supercluster. In summer 2018, the cluster’s management got their first introduction to the Capital Strategy Map. This quickly led to a solid capital strategy, hiring a dedicated Investor Relations Manager and, in 2019, launching their own accelerator and venture fund.
