The Mediterranean Innovation Hub, powered by INTECMED, becomes a meeting point for start-ups and investors of the region


This event took place on the 17th of November 2022 in Barcelona in the framework of the Mediterranean Week of Economic Leaders (MedaWeek), an annual gathering organised by the Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce (ASCAME) that in its 16th edition launched the Mediterranean Innovation Hub with the collaboration of INTECMED project.

The Mediterranean Innovation Hub counted on +250 attendees (most of them in person), the participation of 22 start-ups from seven countries and six ENI CBC MED projects. As well as investors from the Mediterranean Network of Business Angels and international donors, among others.

We continued with the Pitch Event #MadeInthe Mediterranean in which 22 start-ups from Spain, Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, Italy, and Greece pitched in 3-minutes 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.
