News The Incubation Programme for Green Entrepreneurs in the Mediterranean is about to start

 Eighteen entrepreneurs out of the 132 who were selected (in turn out of 1,408) and received 10 hours of individual coaching to improve their green business model have been chosen to enter the incubation phase. The selection was made by a International High Level Jury that operates pro bono and includes a group of independent experts from business, technical, institutional and academic sectors. They are carefully appointed by SCP/RAC and have extensive experience in the MENA countries. In total, 45 entrepreneurs will be selected at the end of the programme, so 27 more will be selected in due course.

At the moment, the 18 selected entrepreneurs are from our SwitchMed target countries: 3 from Algeria, 3 from Israel, 1 from Jordan, 1 from Lebanon, 3 from Morocco, 2 from Palestine and 5 from Tunisia. Their business ideas can be clustered into 6 sectors: organic food and agriculture, renewable energy and energy efficiency, sustainable building and construction, sustainable cleaning products and cosmetics, waste management and resource efficiency.
