It’s a relatively new program started in 2013 with it’s main focus on creating jobs for people with all kinds of backgrounds, either you hold a Phd, or holding a hammer, your the kind of person their aiming on helping.
They already have four startups in their program, and Mireia Castaner, a member of the youth board, tells Barcinno that Hope Projects already have created many jobs through their program.
“Our four first projects are going great, and we want to continue helping new entrepreneurs and startups with their ideas”, she says.
Harder than they thought
“We are truly unique in the way that we don’t require any business plan or a plan at all, just a good idea. We are so surprised that not more people are applying”, says Castaner.
