Of the thirteen projects submitted in June for this year’s Challenge First Step (to support promising business ideas), seven were selected: three from Leti and four from Liten. The winners were announced at a kick-off meeting on September 11. The budding entrepreneurs will now begin the business incubator program with a one-week residential training course on business plans, given by a consultant. They will work in groups of two or three to apply the tools and methods they learn during the course on three “focus” projects chosen by the selection committee for their excellence, originality, and suitability for use as case studies.
The entrepreneurs will submit their funding requests in February 2014. The committee can grant each worthy project up to €150,000 for six months, depending on the project’s funding requirements.
