OVERVIEW: The SDG Innovation Pre-Accelerator Programme, presented by The Base by CyprusInno, is a hybrid live and virtual pre-acceleration program using a blended methodology of ideation, business panning, pitching, networking, and mentorship to empower young social innovators from all across Cyprus ages 18-35 to tackle island-wide challenges related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). What is a pre-accelerator? A pre-accelerator is a programme focused on early stage startups and helps take them from concept to MVP (minimum viable product). It is meant for early stage founders or simply those with an idea who have the ambition to take their startup or idea full-time. The 2-day bootcamp will feature 16 hours of training on business model canvas, social impact measurement, leadership, legal basics, digital marketing, pitching, etc.
