The year starts with the third call, which closes on January 13
The Blue Economy Technological Incubator of the Cádiz Free Zone keeps the project submission period open for the third batch.
The call will close registrations on January 13, so there are only a few days left to join this entrepreneurial adventure. You are in time to join the enthusiasm of a team in which everyone contributes to gain in value and innovation. The new entry window entails a pre-selection of projects that comply with the bases of the call and a Pitch Day in which entrepreneurs present their project to an evaluation committee, made up of experts in entrepreneurship and the blue economy. The initiatives that pass both milestones will enter a comprehensive acceleration program through the Telefónica Open Future methodology, which is collaborating on this project.
Individuals or legal entities established in the EU participate in Incubazul with initiatives and projects of a technological and innovative nature and from a Circular Economy approach and commitment to the environment.
Do you know the six benefits of being incubated?
Incubazul is a project financed by the European Union through the FEDER and its multi-regional operating program 2014-2022, through the Incyde Foundation and promoted and developed by the Free Trade Zone of Cádiz that entails 6 benefits:
Each startup has a bag of hours of mentoring and direct accompaniment. You will have a head mentor who will guide you. Each bi-weekly peer review serves to see how progress is being made in those weeks and what fields need to be addressed in the coming ones. The entire system is adapted so that each initiative receives the most comprehensive training and guidance. It's really about taking projects to the next level.
Supplemental Mentoring Team
A team of mentors offers personalized advice according to the needs of the companies. They cover fields as diverse and complementary as business model, digital marketing, people, legal, technology or communication. Depending on the startup's route or the vital moment of the project, they go in and out of the itinerary in order to configure a global and complete project. A true tailor-made path with the best advice: that of those people who have the experience of entrepreneurship and have gone there before.
Acceso a Tech Lab
The incubator has a technological laboratory (in continuous equipment) to promote the transfer of technology to startups. An innovation center available to companies to be able to test the product, test options and advance in patents.
Magic really happens at Incubazul when all the talent, desire and network work. When companies are nurtured, they come and go and initiatives complement each other and share experiences. Also, when projects are merged, when solutions are provided or processes are democratized. All of this is networking and at Incubazul it is generated in such a propitious and attractive space that there could be no better venue.
The blue economy is becoming increasingly important due to its possibilities for economic development, but with a radical change in model. It is about doing it from respect and environmental sustainability. Cádiz is gaining weight in this sector and there is already a blue community of which Incubazul is already an essential part.
Incubazul promotes a strategic alliance between the Cádiz Free Zone (promoter) and Telefónica (service provider) that allows the initiative to contribute the entire journey of Telefónica Open Future to make the acceleration model one of the most developed and proven on the national scene.
And all this, thanks to the contribution of the European Union through the Feder Funds, who finance and make this project possible.
