The program is a free, carefully curated, training and mentoring program designed to support green entrepreneurs in building robust and sustainable business models and give them the skills, tools, and confidence to set them up for success.
It features a 12-week virtual green business training based on the lean start-up methodology, a mentorship program, one-on-one coaching and networking opportunities culminating in a business plan competition where up to ten businesses can qualify for grants of US $10,000.
Applications from 120 businesses were received for the program, however only 24 were selected after a rigorous screening, evaluation, and selection process.
The selection criteria sought to identify startups with a green focus, strong entrepreneurial mindset, high growth potential and a level of inclusivity among other considerations.
