BioeconomyVentures aims to create an entrepreneurial ecosystem within the bio-based industry sector by offering support services, attracting investment and networking all key agents.

BioeconomyVentures will establish a framework capable of promoting the necessary interaction and collaboration within start-ups and spin-offs, companies, and investors, providing full support to the emerging ecosystem of the bio-based industry.

Within the scope of the project, the partners will develop an advanced methodology to efficiently identify and assess the needs of start-ups, as well as a platform providing all of the services needed by the ecosystem.

The geographical reach of the project will be extended through the Ambassador Programme which, after a careful selection process, will involve 20 additional Clusters, accelerators and intermediary organisations that will contribute to broadening the resonance of BioeconomyVentures within Europe, while also reaching out to local communities and policy makers.

According to the European Commission, by 2035, the bio-based industry will generate some 400,000 new green jobs in Europe, with some of them in rural areas.

This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement no. 101023260
