INCUBATION PROGRAM FOR GREEN ENTREPRENEURS

1st October 2012 | Updated: 16th November 2012

From October, 11th, to November, 15th, the Regional Activity Center for Cleaner Production, with the support of Barcelona Activa, is offering in Barcelona a five-session incubation program for anyone aiming to build a new company or product, in the field of sustainability.


WHAT?
The program supports entrepreneurial people by providing the tools and structure to take an initial idea for a green product or service, and turn it into a solid business plan. For this, experts in the field of sustainability, business development, and ecodesign will be coaching sessions combining small doses of theory and a great amount of hand-on activities.

The program has been designed around the following topics:



  • Session 1: Introduction & strategy

  • Session 2: Designing green solutions

  • Session 3: Implementing a sustainable business model

  • Session 4: Managing a startup

  • Session 5: Communicating your solution

WHAT DO YOU GET?
This is a great opportunity for those entrepreneurial people that have thought of a business idea in the field of sustainability, and that need the necessary support to further work on it. The program is free of charge for selected entrepreneurs.

By participating, you get:



  • A copy of the upcoming CPRAC’s the Mediterranean Program Training Guide;

  • Hands on support on the initial steps of funding a green business idea;

  • The necessary elements to build a green business plan;

  • Access to a network of local and international green entrepreneurs;  


FOR WHO IS THIS?
This program has been specially designed for first time entrepreneurs with an initial green business idea, as well as for professionals working on an established company that would like to explore new green business projects.
The program is held in English, and therefore, a good understanding of this language is recommended.
