In Lebanon, twenty green solutions have been selected to join the Green Applied Research and Innovations Support Program giving green innovators and researchers the chance to turn their solutions into successful green startups.

In the context of the EU-funded Green Impact MED Project (GIMED) under the ENI CBC Med programme, the Lebanese partner Berytech will build the capacities of these selected researchers and innovators throughout a 10-month program, offering them the needed access to financing and networking opportunities and supporting them to develop their green business model to bring their innovation to the Mediterranean markets, contribute to a greener economy, and secure more jobs, especially for women and youths.

Selected projects span across energy-saving, pollution-prevention, waste-recycling, and environmental solutions.

The selected startups will go through a 2-month capacity building program tailored to support them at the end of which they will pitch in front of a selected jury that will select 10 entrepreneurs who will continue in the next acceleration phase.

The Green Impact MED Project – Positive Investments for Positive Impacts (GIMED) is a new EU-funded project, launched under the ENI-CBC Med Programme to support green entrepreneurs to better access finance and market in the Mediterranean.

GIMED’s main goal is to support entrepreneurs, particularly young and women, to better access to finance and markets in 5 Mediterranean countries: Spain, Lebanon, Palestine, Tunisia, Egypt and Italy. On the ground, the project will train and coach eco-innovators and encourage financiers to invest in the Mediterranean eco-innovation sector.
