The INVESTMED project is launching in September 2021 its training program on sustainable business management aiming to have a positive impact on startups and MSMEs in the green, blue and creative and cultural industries in three Arab countries namely Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon.
INVESTMED is a project co-funded under the ENI CBC MED program that aims to address economic and environmental challenges by supporting new sustainable business opportunities for young people and women in these three countries.
The training courses for Egypt, Lebanon and Tunisia will be organized separately with specific dates for each country. Each will have a total of 15 participants.
Applications are open to young graduates (24-35 years old), potential entrepreneurs, startups and MSME staff in the green, blue and creative and cultural industries as well as people with digital ideas in these three sectors. Women of all ages are particularly encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is 21 July 2021.
The objective of the training is to create an enabling environment for sustainable businesses in the three target countries in order to increase the share of cross-border MSMEs/startups run by youth and women.
The training is provided by a highly qualified faculty. The learning process has a practical orientation and takes the form of structured lectures supported by practical applications through business case studies. The training will be complemented by online courses, interactive online labs and tutoring. The program lasts 12 months.
After the training, some candidates will participate in a summer school in Sardinia to take business ideas from the exploration stage to more structured initiatives.
