We continued with the Pitch Event #MadeIntheMediterranean in which 22 start-ups from Spain, Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, Italy, and Greece had three minutes to pitch their solutions to the attendees. Most of these start-ups have been backed up by ENI CBC MED programme and in particular the incubator programme of INTECMED project. The sectors chosen were agri-food, circular economy/sustainability, and technology. It was a very fruitful event in which some of the start-ups found synergies among themselves, and investors asked great questions. Watch it here
