The training will be done using the brand-new TheSwitchers.org web platform, a learning and business development management system enabling interaction among entrepreneurs, business providers, mentors and financial institutions willing to develop novel business models in the domain of Green and Circular Economy.
The training will consist on a theoretical and hands-on learning methodology with a wide range of tools to support eco-entrepreneurs with the transformation of their ideas into a sustainable and successful business. Based on the business canvas and the lean start-up approach, it integrates environmental aspects and impacts of the company or project in all stages of the business plan and strategy.
Lastly, the green entrepreneur training programme will be organised around five steps to be taken into account when developing a green business model: sketch and set, build, test, implement, measure and improve.
