Indeed, following the call for proposals that will be launched on each territory, about 40 preselected candidates will benefit from a training and coaching in the development of their business plans that they will present at the finals. An international jury will choose the two best projects for each territories, following a pitching session.


10 winners (2 per territory) will then be awarded a grant of € 10,000 each to start their project. They will also receive specific support and will be liaised with local and national organisations that could boost their project with a financial, technological or commercial contribution. The projects from successful candidates will also benefit from a wide promotion through LACTIMED network.
