Seminars acceleration on entrepreneurship aimed at university students, researchers, aspiring start-ups, innovative companies, managers and experts to transfer knowledge, skills and tools to become entrepreneurs starting from business ideas.
The Anglo-Saxon seminar model to stimulate entrepreneurship was elaborated by Prof Russell Smith of the University of Malta, already successfully tested.
The program is divided into an organic sequence grouped into three macro-areas:
- Germination (Leadership, From idea to Business, Access to the markets, Team Development)
- Incubation (Business Planning, Financing a business idea)
- Acceleration (Pitching, Leadership Management & Control)
The aim of the seminars was to guide entrepreneurs and aspiring people towards a competitive and innovative cross-border network where new and winning ideas can be created that allow access to new markets. The seminars are preparatory to the Call Competition for Ideas and the MedFest event, opportunity for match-making with investors, to be held in Malta next November 2019.
Two series of seminars held in Sicily at the Kore University of Enna and the University of Messina, and two others at the University of Malta. Each series lasted 80 hours.
