Better Incubation is a project by LIAISE

CoP project ’50+ Getting Started. Boost your Project’  presented at the EMES International Research Conference

Centro de Empresas e Innovación de Aragón (CEEI ARAGON) based in Zaragoza, one of the EBN members participating in the Better Incubation Community of Practice for Senior entrepreneurs presented Better Incubation project to the international audience at the 8th EMES International Research Conference on Social Enterprise, held in Zaragoza, Spain in October 4-8, 2021.

In her presentation, Concepción Ramos, Project Manager at CEEI ARAGON, also featured their inclusive incubation pilot ’50+ Getting Started. Boost your Project’. Starting early September, the pilot will be implemented through mid-January next year. The three best entrepreneurial business ideas of senior entrepreneurs with innovative spirit will be selected and will receive incubation support directly at the CEEI ARAGON.

The importance of this pilot lies in boosting entrepreneurship and innovation in the rural environment, largely suffering from a lack of job opportunities and de-population. As she stated the inclusive entrepreneurship can facilitate creation of jobs and create opportunities for self-development and economic autonomy of under-represented groups, including seniors and women living in the rural areas.

The EMES Conference offered a unique possibility to present the project to the large audience of local and international stakeholders of academic and non-academic background, working in social innovation, social entrepreneurship and solidarity sectors.
