Better Incubation is a project by LIAISE

Join us for the Inclusive Entrepreneurship Workshop : Seniors, 22 June

The deep dive workshop on seniors is a part of Inclusive Entrepreneurship Workshop series.

It will focus on senior entreprenuers (50+) as an underrepresented group in the entrepreneurship ecosystem.  The workshop will create a safe and supportive space to offer inspiration and guidance for business support organisations, based on actions and methodologies already successfully implemented on the ground across Europe, to support implementation of inclusive practice.

You will learn from subject matter experts, social entrepreneurs with lived experiences of the challenges being explored, and business support organisations leading the way in developing and delivering inclusive incubation services.
