Innovation Bee Spearheads Entrepreneurial Growth in Italy with the GROWTH Project

In the picturesque city of Viterbo, Italy, a groundbreaking initiative is taking shape, poised to redefine the landscape of youth entrepreneurship. The GROWTH Project, an innovative endeavor coordinated by Prometeus and financially bolstered by Erasmus funds to the tune of 250.000 euros, stands as a beacon of hope and opportunity for aspiring young entrepreneurs. At the forefront of this transformative movement is Innovation Bee, a collective of visionary thinkers and expert engineers, collaborating with six other partners to drive this initiative forward.

The project’s unveiling on November 7, 2023, at the Lazio Innova active space in Valle Faul, Viterbo, marked a significant milestone. Federica Mancini, the president of Prometeus, proudly announced, “Growth Project, we are the first in Italy.” This achievement is not just a feather in the cap for Prometeus but a testament to the project’s unique approach to fostering entrepreneurship among youth, especially those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds or facing intellectual challenges.

The GROWTH Project, as Mancini -the head of Lazio Innova- elucidates, is a movement that encapsulates growth in its truest sense. It aims to empower young individuals to establish startups, thereby combating youth unemployment. The project’s focus on data analysis, professional development, and providing a manual for working with entrepreneurial-minded youth is a game-changer in the realm of business creation.

Lazio Innova, under the leadership of Giulio Curti and with contributions from Nicoletta Gasparini of the Europe office of the Lazio region, plays a crucial role in the project.
Their activities are categorized into three main areas:

  1. Supporting startups
  2. Promoting technological innovation culture
  3. Nurturing a collaborative community
    This triad forms the backbone of the project’s approach to fostering entrepreneurial, cultural, and technological innovation in the region.

The project’s success in ranking first out of 300 applications in Italy, securing funding for one of only five projects, is a remarkable achievement that underscores the potential impact of this initiative.

The GROWTH Project, with the collaborative efforts of Innovation Bee, Prometeus, Lazio Innova, and other partners, is a testament to what can be achieved when vision, expertise, and a commitment to innovation come together to create opportunities for the leaders of tomorrow.
