COMPANY PROGRAM - #CPINNOVATE
INJAZ Lebanon is running the Company Program (CP) under the theme of INNOVATE FOR INCLUSION #CPInnovate, which aims to find innovative solutions to inclusion in different environments such as sports, workplace, cultural sector, green or creative industries. It is in partnership with Citi Foundation and INJAZ Al-Arab.
Company Program is a 6-month entrepreneurship program, starting from February to July 2023, and available for both University and High-School teams of 3+ members each. During CP, teams will participate in online training sessions to get introduced to the business world.
Throughout this journey, participants will come up with innovative ideas related to inclusion, organize themselves into different departments (sales, marketing, finance, HR, etc.), develop a product or a service, start operating the company, and finally submit a business report in order to participate in the national Young Entrepreneurs Competition (YEC 2023)!
