Entrepreneurs for Social Change

Our partners at Make a Cube highlighted this interesting initiative: a  7-day training organized by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations for young people from the Euro-Mediterranean region to enhance the skills needed to boost a business idea with a social mission, and be a powerful motor of economic development and social inclusion.

Do you have a social business idea that needs to be given a boost? Are you a young adult between the age of 18 and 35  and you come from the Euro-Med region? If you either already have a social enterprise and need to learn how to leverage it or you have already taken steps to start a social enterprise and want to learn how to move its business, this is an outstanding opportunity for you.

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations is organizing a 7-day training in collaboration with Fondazione CRT and the Italian Government. The training will bring together 20 young people from the Euro-Mediterranean region to enhance the skills needed to boost a business idea with a social mission, and be a powerful motor of economic development and social inclusion.

In addition to this training, the selected 20 young adults will receive feedback from peers, mentoring from experienced social entrepreneurs and will be matched with potential investors during the 9 months following the training. The event will be organized at Fondazione CRT premises in Torino (Italy) from 16 to 22 October 2014.

There is no participation fee, and all participants will be provided with round-trip international tickets to Torino as well as accommodations, meals and visa support.

Deadline: July 26th.
