Last few days to apply to TRANSITION Transnational Startup Lab: take your social venture to another country

co_callsThe Transition programme is supporting social innovations to move into new European markets through its ‘Transnational Startup Lab (TSL)’. Transition TSL  is working to identify and accelerate the implementation of revolutionary, scalable social innovations into new countries.

What is the Transnational Start-up Lab?

The Transnational Start-up Lab is based on rapid prototyping methodology. It is a structured process of support that enables the creation and validation of social ventures. It aims to:

– Help social innovations with proven social impact accelerate the process of change on a European scale
– Optimize their existing resources
– Increase their chances of success in a new location
– Reduce the risksassociated with entrepreneurship abroad

What does it involve?

The Transnational Start-up Lab is a 3 day, intensive training programme. It will provide each social innovation with rapid market acclimatisation, giving them the opportunity to test their ideas with a series of experts from the local market.

Who can apply?

Any social innovation that feels it has the potential to make a positive difference in either London or Bilbao. You will be assessed on the strength of your innovation in addressing key needs identified the new location.

How to apply?

Any innovation looking to apply should contact their local Transition scaling centre (Basque Country, Milan, Lisbon, Paris Region, Ireland West, London). Their centre will have a discussion with the innovation about their suitability to take part and recommend them for assessment accordingly. After that, you can apply via this application form; final  assessments will take place via skype with the London and Bilbao teams.

What is the deadline?

You can apply from 01/04/2015 to 20/04/2015.
