In Palestine, 23 green solutions have been selected to receive training and turn their ideas into successful green start-ups. After a highly selective evaluation process headed by Leaders International, GIMED’s Palestinian partner, innovators will receive the necessary training to grow their ideas and turn them into profitable businesses.

In this sense, the first capacity-building workshop has already taken place. It was useful to have an overview about the programme logistics and objectives and present The Switchers.org platform that is being used to conduct the workshops.

In the context of the EU-funded ENI CBC MED Programme, Leaders International will build the capacities of these selected innovators through a 10-month program, supporting them to access to financing and networking opportunities and helping them to develop their green business model to bring their innovation to Mediterranean markets.

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.
