Humanship

Description of the project offered: 
The HUMANSHIP Project is designed to stimulate the adoption of a "humanistic entrepreneurship" approach, in order to promote the creation, business development and scaling-up of young companies in the tourism sector.
As stated in the 2010 EU Green Paper Unlocking the potential of cultural and creative industries, places where there is a good presence of creative industries are the places where innovation is stronger. Innovation entails multi-sector skills and an integrated way of thinking and operating.
A revitalization of the Humanistic approach will considerably help to design an eco-system where innovation and creativity may become a powerful engine to foster entrepreneurship and economic growth.

EUTOPIA, a young non-profit organisation based in Italy (Marche region), has strong interest and remarkable expertise in facilitating young creatives to develop their ideas into valuable and sustainable business models. 
We have developed a project to pilot and deploy a support scheme to facilitate the match between supply and demand for innovative ideas in the tourism sector. This will be accomplished actively fostering, through the business skills and innovation potential of young creatives co-working, facilitation and networking activities, thus helping early-stage entrepreneurs to adopt a more “humanistic” viewpoint. The supported start-ups will be put in contact, through a voucher scheme, with SMEs and Institutions operating in the tourism sector, to develop new products and services for territorial marketing. The project will be focused in Southern European countries.
The Italian non-profit organisation is seeking for a Lead partner from Southern Europe: Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Greece or Turkey. Lead partner has to be a Public Body, University or R&D centre interested and experienced in coordinating the international partnership and in testing a new model for supporting start-ups and SMEs in Tourism Sector.
