February 14th, 2012
On the 14th of February 2012, the CSCP together with the Regional Activity Centre for Cleaner Production, Mediterranean Action Plan, Boğaziçi University Sustainable Development and Cleaner Production Center and the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanization kicked off the Mediterranean Edition of the SMART Start-up Program. This edition focuses on the challenges and opportunities of Sustainable Entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean countries. The multidisciplinary group of talented and motivated Turkish students, young professionals and entrepreneurs from the Mediterranean region, truly created a very inspiring and productive workshop atmosphere throughout the training.
The Training’s participants were a multidisciplinary group of talented and motivated Turkish students, young professionals and entrepreneurs who also joined the Stakeholders Meeting, where sixty Sustainable Business and Entrepreneurship stakeholders, from entrepreneurs to policy makers, NGOs, academics, companies as well as students and young professionals from Turkey interacted and dialogued seeking to understand different points of view concerning existing challenges, opportunities and needs to enhance the Sustainable Entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean region.
Building on the positive feedback and the learning derived from the pilot application of the SMART Start-up in Turkey, the CSCP is looking forward to replicating the SMART Start-up Program in other Mediterranean countries.
