The egg-enter•grow•go program
The egg-enter•grow•go program is a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative of Eurobank that has been designed and implemented in collaboration with Corallia. It aims to support innovative youth entrepreneurship and to strengthen employment opportunities in Greece, especially between youth people.
The program provides youth people business teams with an integrated frame of business incubation, acceleration and co-working by offering a range of supporting actions and tools that help them develop and accelerate their business ideas into an integrated and viable business product or service.
The Program is developed in three distinct stages:
enter: any youth person from Greece with innovative ideas from any industry vertical could participate in the Program. Interests parties should submit their proposal, as specified in the Invitation for Expression of Interest, which later will be evaluated by distinguished experts on three assessment criteria: Its innovative content, its prospect for the future and its viability in the market.
grow: the youth people whose business plan will qualify for entrance to the program, will be supported initially to set up their business (if not already active). Then, during the next 12 months, which is the duration of each Program’s “cycle”, they will have the opportunity to focus intensively on the development of their business idea, by utilizing the infrastructure and support services offered by the Program and by seeking partnerships and synergies with other participants, as members of a developmental ecosystem. Thus, they will confirm in practice the potential and viability of their business plan.
go: participation in the Program is completed by all participating businesses who actually see their plan getting matured and tested in the market. The youth entrepreneurs are then ready to make their leap into the actual market and proceed to the capitalization of their idea, using either own resources or an investment scheme. The Program organizers will support the participating businesses with financial planning services and provide them with networking opportunities to investment schemes.
