The EU-funded INVESTMED project is launching sub-grants for Business Support Organisations (BSOs) in Egypt, Lebanon and Tunisia.
The aim of the sub-grants is to support the development, launch and implementation of an incubation and acceleration programme to enable selected entrepreneurs to take a step further towards realising their business goals.
The project intends to solve the economic and environmental issues that small enterprises in the Mediterranean face in order to promote long-term growth and development in three important sectors:
- Green Economy – in which the economic activities, infrastructures and assets of the sector enable the reduction of carbon emissions and pollution, improve energy and resource efficiency, and avoid the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
- Blue Economy – related to oceans, seas, lakes, rivers and coasts to promote economic growth, social inclusion and the preservation or improvement of livelihoods, while avoiding environmental and ecosystem degradation.
- Creative & Cultural Industries – enterprises engaged in the production or reproduction, promotion, distribution or marketing of goods, services and activities with content derived from cultural, artistic or heritage origins.
Deadline to submit applications is the 21st of February 2022.
