INVESTMED holds co-ordination meetings to support 38 entrepreneurs
Last week, the INVESTMED project held three coordination meetings for its entrepreneurs selected under the call for subgrants. INVESTMED aims to support young and women entrepreneurs to launch their businesses in the green economy, blue economy, and the cultural and creative industries. Under this initiative, the project has selected 38 entrepreneurs to build their businesses in Egypt, Lebanon, and Tunisia and is providing them support through three selected Business Support Organisations who will mentor and guide them.
The hybrid coordination meetings had the aim of presenting the 38 entrepreneurs with all the necessary information they need to effectively carry out the subgrant implementation and their business plans. This included administrative and financial details as well as how they will be supported by their BSOs setting out the roadmap for the upcoming months of the project.
