The Business Startups Incubators Support (BSIS) Project in Palestine,
funded by EU and implemented by the Belgian Development Agency (BTC), organized
“Entrepreneurship Awareness and Boot Camps” at the Business and
Technology Incubator of the Islamic University in Gaza.
The objective was to increase the interest in entrepreneurship among potential entrepreneurs by demonstrating the economic, social and psychological rewards of entrepreneurship.
Each awareness session included a Q&A session with local entrepreneurs who already launched their own start-up. This way the participants got familiar with the challenges and rewards related to entrepreneurship. The participants also got to know more about the services BSIS offers to entrepreneurs.
The awareness sessions were followed by two-day Boot Camps. The Boot Camps aimed at encouraging team work and stimulating idea generation. The trainer illustrated the process of idea development through a brainstorming session with the participants. The participants were divided into multi-disciplinary teams and each team was requested to brainstorm about an idea and pitch it to the other groups. Afterwards the groups had to vote for their favorite idea. The best pitching teams were selected to attend an intensive “Start up your business training” which will be announced soon.
