Last month, 30 potential entrepreneurs from each of the following countries: Italy, Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia, and France, took each a seat on a plane, but all the flights had one destination: Amman-Jordan.
The potential entrepreneurs were selected by BESTMEDGRAPE and followed a specific training to help them develop their ideas by using the nanotechnology provided by the project to transform grape by-products into cosmeceutical and nutraceutical products and then create their own business.
These talented and ambitious people met with BESTMEDGRAPE team members from the 5 countries involved in the project, in Amman, and they attended the “Business creation joint event” organized by the Jordan Society for Scientific Research, Entrepreneurship and Creativity (JSSREC).
Only 10 entrepreneurs from each country will be selected at the end of the project. Each winner will receive a 5,000 euros award to help them with their start-ups.
BESTMEDGRAPE “New Business opportunities & Environmental suSTainability using MED GRAPE nanotechnological products” aims to foster the sustainable exploitation of winemaking waste to obtain nanotechnological products for human health, supporting at the same time the creation of startups and SMEs.
