We at EPN Consulting are proud to announce that a few days ago we coordinated the kick-off meeting of our new Erasmus+ project: “Impact Incubator for Nurturing Sustainability” – i2 SustainIT.
The overall consortium is participated by 6 partners from 4 countries:
- EPN Consulting (Stefano Mainero – Coordinator) – UK
- CEED Bulgaria – Bulgaria
- Creative District – Belgium
- IDEC – Greece
- KISMC-Knowledge, Innovation and Strategies Management Club – Bulgaria
- Worldview Impact Foundation – UK
Due to the Covid-19, the kick-off meeting – planned to be in London (UK) – was delayed for some months while assessing the overall pandemic situation in Europe. After realising that scattered lockdown & quarantine measures, travel restrictions, lack of/poor flights connections could last for too long, we decided to hold it online.
The overall goal of the i2 SustainIT project is to maximise the understanding and transfer of knowledge on impact, impact investment and sustainability to tackle societal and environmental challenges.
The Project Objectives are: 1) Create a set of innovative educational tools for mentors and investors to enhance theirs skills and know-how to better support social entrepreneurs in their impact journeys in the incubation phase; 2) Establish an immersive digital incubator platform, with an open access of the knowledge base of the developed tools for impact investors and mentors, while connecting them with the social entrepreneurs and their early stage projects.
The project is due to end in September 2021 with a final conference to be organised in London. A concise profile is currently available on the Erasmus+ portal while in the next weeks the project website will be up and running with more details.
