On May 5, 2008, the Ile-de-France Region launched its first PM'up call for proposals, aimed to support French SMEs and SMIs with the most promising three-year development strategy.
The winners were selected with the help of a jury representing a wide range of social and economic players.
The winners would receive a custom-tailored support package, including a grant of up to €250,000 to sustain activity that boosts development, including consulting, international development, investment, and hiring.
To guide the companies in their performance, expert advisors selected by the Region are available along the way.
SysperTec was among the 180 SME/SMI winners, out of 338 applicants in 2008.
