01 Mar MEnt Project in Italy: the second incubation cycle
Yesterday, Avanzi and Make a Cube3 hosted the Mentors’ evening of the second cycle of MEnt Project in Italy.
The mentoring and incubation programme kicked off in January with the Short Training Session, a two-day workshop with the 15 entrepreneurial ideas which had been selected via call. The Short Training Session provided first support to migrants for the refinement of their business ideas through both collective and one-to-one tutoring sessions.
10 business ideas were then selected to take part into the Light Incubation phase which consisted of two workshops aimed at developing a solid business model, providing inspiration in terms of content, process, approaches and attitude and expanding the network of allied partners and people. The Light Incubation ended yesterday night with the Mentors’ evening: the teams pitched in front of an audience of mentors, tutors and experts who offered their support and gave insight and advice to the future migrant entrepreneurs about their business ideas.
The 10 business ideas who joined the second cycle of MEnt Project in Italy are the following:
