STAND Up! project has selected a cluster of four circular fashion and textile start-ups in Egypt. These sustainable initiatives have been selected with the aim of entering the early-stage incubation phase of the project, which includes seven months of mentoring and technical consultancy in the financial, marketing and product development fields.
The four winning green ventures were identified through a call that joined 13 finalist projects, with a jury of experts with a strong focus on sustainable consumption and production in the textile and clothing industry.
In this sense, this task of evaluating the proposals was entrusted to three high-level academics professionals in the field of business administration, economics, sustainable development and marketing.
The STAND Up! project, funded by the EU under the ENI CBC Med programme, aims to enhance scalable, replicable, and inclusive circular economy ventures in the Mediterranean by developing an ecosystem of business support, innovation, and technology transfer that will lead to sustainable job creation for youth and women.
