Step 6: Final Commitment

During the last stage, the final business plan is discussed with the internal higher management and external financers. Based on these discussions, final commitment is given and the and the Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) is initiated.

As a result of in-depth discussions with individual partners on the second draft of the business plan and discussions with investors, the second draft of the business plan should be fine-tuned and finalized. The final business plan and other adjusted proposal should then be sent to the funding sources.

If necessary, a workshop with the higher management should be organized to discuss any outstanding issues. After all partners commit to the final version of the business plan, the legal status of the DIH can also be initiated.
