Incubaeco, SCP/RAC – UNEP/MAP external experts on eco-entrepreneurship, in action along the Mediterranean: Italy, Lebanon, Tunisia, Global Eco Forum in Barcelona …
The success of the first event of this nature, together with the obvious growth of this meetup group, clearly indicate the existence of an emerging and dynamic community of international eco-entrepreneurs in Barcelona. Building on that, we’ve established a multiple partnership among two organizations, rooted in Barcelona, who share a vision and a passion for intercultural and sustainable entrepreneurship around the world:
- Regional Activity Center for Sustainable Consumption and Production – United Nations Environment Programme/Mediterranean Action Plan – (SCP/RAC- UNEP/MAP)
And this is the little story behind how the “Who is who? Open elevator pitch for international eco-entrepreneurs” caterpillar turned into a free-flying butterfly and became a monthly series that will revolutionize the cosmopolitan eco-entrepreneurial ecosystem in the City of Gaudí. So, here we go …
- 6:30 – 6:50 pm: brief introduction to the partnering, co-hosting organizations: SCP/RAC – UNEP/MAP and Incubaeco.
- 6:50 – 8:00 pm: eco-entrepreneurs’ pitches, including, on occasion, Skype calls with guest eco-entrepreneurs based in other countries.
- Pitch format: 3-minute oral speech (in English) plus a 2-minute round of questions.
- 8:00 – 8:30 pm: networking & ecological cocktail.
