How manage Business Plans through the MySTART application - with or without monitoring (mentoring)

Updated: Nov 18, 2022

How to manage Business Plans (PA) in MySTART:

  1. without monitoring/ mentor - made individual account by MA (without MIP team support)

  2. with monitoring / mentoring - the business plan is made within the framework of an "umbrella" type project, which provides the source of funding for the Business Plan.

For the first case (a), the full management of the PA is carried out by the Business Manager (MA - the direct beneficiary of the business plan, respectively the Legal Administrator of the StartUp), without a third party being involved in monitoring the implementation of the business plan.

In case (b), the management of the business plan by the MA with the monitoring of all activities carried out by the MA to ExpertMonitoring throughout the implementation period.

ExpertMonitoring - is designated by the Project Manager from the funding source project. It can be replaced at any time, with the mention that during the monitoring of the Business Plan, all Operations associated with the PA are validated by ExpertMonitoring, and the deliverables are targeted / signed both in stack files (_PA_...) and in the source project Archive .

Individual PA management - without monitoring/mentoring:

Business Plan management is carried out individually by the Business Manager (MA) - without mentoring/monitoring and without the intervention of the MIP team.
