On April 21 2021, at 10 AM (CEST – Italian time) the Lebanese University will virtually host the “Start Cup Competition: Entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean”, organised in the framework of the activities of UNIMED SubNetwork on Employability.

The “Start Cup Competition” is indeed an event jointly organised by UNIMED and by the Lebanese University, coordinator of the SubNetwork on Employability, with the Centre MINE, the Center for Trades, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Faculty of Economics and Management Sciences, and with the collaboration of the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie – Moyen Orient and the European Training Foundation (ETF).

Following the previous edition in 2018, that took place in Messina (Italy) in September 2018 within the initiatives and activities of the RESUME project, the “Start Cup Competition 2020/2021” is a contest calling for entrepreneurial ideas developed by students enrolled in Mediterranean universities. This competition aims to encourage students of the universities of the two shores of the Mediterranean to present innovative ideas in the field of entrepreneurship.

Several teams of students from Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Palestine, Cyprus and Italy will pitch their own business idea and a jury composed by ETF, AUF and UNIMED will select the most innovative and creative entrepreneurial idea.

The Start Cup Competition in Lebanon is part of a series of initiatives organised in the framework of the UNIMED SubNetwork on Employability, launched as part of the RESUME project, a European Union project funded under the Erasmus + Capacity Building program, whose objective is to promote cooperation between members on the theme of entrepreneurship and employability, through the collection of information and initiatives, through ongoing projects and partnerships already undertaken or in the process of definition, with university departments, research centres, researchers, professors, international experts, entrepreneurs, policy makers.
