The CLUSTER4GREEN project launched a pitching competition for MSMEs in partnership with Berytech. 29 MSMEs applied to the call to participate in the Sustainable Investment Pitching Competition, out of which ten were shortlisted for the pitching day during the Green Innovation Days 2022, that took place in Beirut, Lebanon.
The final three winners would receive a €3,000 voucher to enhance their sustainability within these four categories of impact: Economic, Environmental, Social, and Territorial. Winning this pitch will allow those businesses to recruit an expert to help them expand their sustainability.
The creation of economic opportunities through the promotion and development of the Mediterranean circular economy is the essence of CLUSTER4GREEN. In a vast part of the region, the leverage potential of circular economy is still lagging, deeply affecting the capacity of green sectors to generate wealth and jobs. CLUSTER4GREEN will take on the legacy of several previous projects that paved the way for the adoption of sustainable models of development, based on the circular concept, in industries like textile, building or smart cities.
The objective of this program is to support MSMEs in adopting circular economy innovation processes and in establishing national and international consolidated collaboration agreements including the building of Public-Private Partnerships.
