News: BlueCrowdMED: Crowdfunding for Blue Economy projects in the Mediterranean regions of Spain

BlueCrowdMED is a call for small and medium-sized companies, cooperatives, social entrepreneurs, civil society organizations and NGOs of the Spanish Mediterranean regions who wish to learn how to carry out successful crowdfunding campaigns to develop projects with social impact in the blue economy sector.

Within the framework of the Interreg Med project "Blue Crowdfunding, capacity building of BLUE economy stakeholders to effectively use CROWDFUNDING", this call seeks to promote economic initiatives related to the blue economy sector, that is, related to the use of marine resources and coastal areas of the Mediterranean regions, through crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding is an innovative tool for the promotion of initiatives through small contributions of collective and collaborative digital financing whose use could be significantly increased, since it is an effective and versatile tool to share concepts, test and validate projects with the crowd. The Blue Crowdfunding InterregMED project aims to increase the capacity of the blue economy sector and its stakeholders to use this powerful and innovative tool to develop their initiatives.

In this context, the Chamber of Commerce of Seville launches an open call for the selection of initiatives from SMEs, cooperatives, social entrepreneurs, civic society organizations and NGOs from the Mediterranean regions of Spain that wish to embark on the world of crowdfunding, offering them the advice of expert professionals on how to carry out successful crowdfunding campaigns and thus reinforce the use of this tool in the blue economy sector within the Mediterranean area.
