Within the Blue Crowdfunding Interreg MED project (#BlueCrowdMED), the first campaigns are launched in Spain. Meet the participants and find out how the use of crowdfunding can boost blue economy in the Mediterranean region.
A journalist, a professional on sustainable tourism, an international trade expert in the construction sector and a ship’s carpenter.
You may wonder what these four people have in common with such a different background. Well, at least we found three things:
- Entrepreneurial spirit.
- A strong connection to the Mediterranean Sea.
- They believe that crowdfunding can get their projects off the ground, or at least they are willing to give it a try.
Fundación Goteo announced the four entrepreneurs selected in the first Blue Crowdfunding Mediterranean call (#BlueCrowdMED), and they’ve already launched their campaigns. As you might have guessed, they are the four people we mentioned earlier. Coming from such different backgrounds, what solution will each of them bring to face the challenges of the blue economy?
These campaigns are promoted by the Chamber of Commerce of Sevilla and supported by the Interreg MED Project– Blue Crowdfunding-Capacity Building of Blue Economy Stakeholders to Effectively use Crowdfunding project, which aims to unlock the blue economy's potential in the Mediterranean region. More is about to come in Portugal, Croatia, Slovenia, Malta, Greece, Cyprus, and Albania. If you have an innovative solution in the sector of the blue economy, stay tuned!
