Please describe how the project benefited the Nordic-Baltic cooperation
We, SIA Trakais Rotors, are inventors and developers of innovative amusement devices Crazy Roller MTN for downhill and Crazy Roller H2O for watersports industry. Both products are unique and it has taken a long time to develop them.
Any support is crucial and means much to us, because banks and other institutions do not finance innovative small businesses.
On 2013 we have first export, now we need to expand cooperation and get more joint projects and develop new product versions. As we are small enterprise in beginning stage, we expect program support will help us grow as it already helped to move from prototype to real product and first contract!
Main results of the project
The program helped us to get our first export contract in Iceland!
In 2009 we had only prototype and ideas. During our project supported by program we gathered lots of information during personal meetings and came to ready product in 2011. Our products were sold in Latvian market and in the same time tested in 2011 and 2012. After these tests we were ready to export. Norden support in 2012 BI-GRO-242 helped us to visit some countries second time and, thus we got first export contract to Iceland end of march 2013! To our partners - active sports sites in Nordic countries it has given a lot of knowledge exchange, information and now also first new product to entertain customers.
