The Incubator and GSE Incubator (Green & Social Entrepreneurship Incubator) programs offer free of charge the necessary supplies through training and consulting to Civil Society Organizations that are in the process of starting/operating/restarting and have a legal status of up to 2 years. The two programs last from 12 to 24 months and can accept (up to) 5 stakeholders each.
The Accelerator program is an “accelerator” that will give the opportunity to (up to) 8 Civil Society Organizations from all over Greece, which have closed at least 2 years of operation, to grow and develop further through a free intensive training and consulting program lasting 6 months.
The 3 programs include 4 weeks of mandatory intensive training (Bootcamp), workshops and seminars, one-to-one meetings and mentorship with specialized partners, but also networking opportunities with other Greek and international Civil Society Organizations, mass media and financiers. All trainings are conducted online.
