The “Start Cup Competition – Entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean” is a contest aiming at encouraging student teams from universities on both shores of the Mediterranean to present innovative ideas in the field of entrepreneurship.
The initiative was launched in 2018 in the framework of the ERASMUS+ Capacity Building project RESUME and is part of the activities of the UNIMED SubNetwork on Employability, whose aim is to strengthen economic and social cohesion by promoting, on the one hand, cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation, and on the other, sustainable local development.
The initiative is jointly organized by UNIMED and the Lebanese University, coordinator of the UNIMED SubNetwork on Employability, with the collaboration of the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie – Moyen Orient and the European Training Foundation (ETF).
The 5th Edition of the Start Cup Competition will be held during the UNIMED General Assembly 2024 (October 23 & 24), hosted by the Istanbul Aydin University.
