Startups4Peace is a competition and mini-acceleration programme co-funded by the Embassy of Finland and the European Union within the scope of the Innovative Entrepreneurship project, implemented by NI-CO. The programme is delivered in partnership with CYENS, Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce.
We aim to encourage innovative startup entrepreneurship with intercommunal vision in Cyprus, to bring together and increase contacts between Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities and support entrepreneurs in developing their businesses.
Su4P will provide much needed support to new and fledgling businesses through the delivery of;
- Series of workshops as part of two residential bootcamps;
- “One-to-one mentoring sessions” depending on the needs of the startups;
- “Market discovery” opportunity for professional development of each startup, and;
- A “Pitching battle” where startups will compete with their business ideas to impress an independent jury which is formed of business professionals. Winners will have chance to attend world’s leading startup event, Slush, in Finland.
