Originally a separate legal entity, CIE is being absorbed into Navigator Consulting & Innovation Partners in September 2023 in order to reduce overhead costs and improve synergies and operations. 


The CIE is currently managing four initiatives that have emerged from within the Navigator Consulting Group ecosystem: 


  • European Innovation Mentor (EIM)

  • European Consulting Network (ECN) 

  • European Project Finance Fund (EPF)

  • Business Cluster Network (BCN).


The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is based in Limassol, Cyprus, but has the capacity and remit to provide its service across Europe and world-wide. 

In 2023, the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship was legally absorbed into Navigator Consulting & Innovation Partners following our One Enterprise Strategy.
