Goal: Through its business preincubationprogram of 20 positive ideas, Atípics has several goals:
Motivation: Young people in Catalonia have the same interest in starting a business as the young people in other countries. However most of young catalans never do it. On another note, many of the projects that reach business incubators, business angels, financial institutions, etc are in need of more structure and robustness. For this reason, Atípics aims to support young catalans in the initial phases of entrepreneurship: to help them acquire a level of matureness, enter into the market or reach to other institutions with a stronger project. Atípics foresees the need of converging the models of for profit and not for profit in one which we call for benefit (i.e., the creation of social value). Thus, Atípics promotes and prioritizes projects with positive impact.
Expected Impact: Atípics expects, by the end of the preincubationprogram, that 20 strong projects will be launched. This will translate in:
Partners: SOC, Bankia and Fondo de Garantía Juvenil
Execution period: 2017
