Basque Country SC call for proposals #1

Denokinn launched INNICIA, the first Basque coompetition for social business ideas and entrepreneurial initiatives.

Organized in the framework of TRANSITION Project, INNICIA will enable Denokinn to select the first cohort of social innovations that will undergo TRANSITION Social Innovation Journey, benefiting from Denokinn support and incubation services. Entrepreneurial capabilities , feasibility of the social innovation presented and its social impact will be evaluated.


Any person or entity with a project may participate in the coompetition.

You can either present an initial idea or an established business with a strong social and innovative connotation: the more developed , more innovative and more social the idea is, the better.

Submitted projects will be assessed by an expert group in terms of their quality, originality and feasibility. A total of 20 proposals will be selected for the support activities.

These 20 projects will be supported for 6 months (May-October 2014) at the premises of Social Innovation Park: here selected social innovators will further improve their project with the help of a group of experts in entrepreneurship.

At the end of this Social Innovation Journey, Denokinn will assign 3 awards to the best social innovations: the 20 participants will pitch in front of a prestigious jury defending their projects ad explaining the journey they went through with the support of TRANSITION Basque Country Scaling Centre, Denokinn.

If you want to be part of INNICIA competition submit your project by March 31, 2014. Direct link to the registration page

The 20 selected social innovations will be announced at the end of April 2014
