MESUP Project (Mentoring Start-Ups): INTERREG GREECE – CYPRUS Project
In the framework of the project “Cross-border Mentoring for Networking & Developing New Innovative Enterprises – Mentoring Startups (MESUP) the MESUP Entrepreneurship Competition has been published.
The MESUP Entrepreneurship Competition aimed at actively promoting entrepreneurial culture primarily in Crete but also in the rest of Greece and in Cyprus. The Competition has been an opportunity for young researchers, students and people interested in starting new innovative enterprises, as well as start-ups. It has also been an opportunity for them to be trained in matters related to the establishment and operation of new enterprises, to create networks and to compete with their innovative ideas. Any interested party was able participate after submitting an electronic application and taking part in training via the moodle platform.
