CITES opened the call to take part of a new edition of CITES Startups, acceleration program that in this opportunity is boosted together with the National University of Córdoba (UNC, by its Spanish acronym). This program looks for projects about Agro Technology; Biotechnology, Logistics; Mobility; Renewable Energies; Medical Technology, Food Technology; Telecommunications; Banking Technology; Insurance and Finance, that have a prototype or proof of concept based on protectable intellectual property and which aim at global growing markets.
As a novelty, this year the program added a Pre- incubation Bootcamp for the selected projects. This event will be carried out in the city of Córdoba in order to work intensively in the boosting of the business case with specialized people within the area. Furthermore, there will be speeches from referents from the entrepreneur environment and from big companies that develop innovation within their business.
For those projects that are selected we offer an investment of up to USD 500,000 + USD 100,000 in in-kind services; active management from CITES staff; access to investors networks, strategic partners and global level experts; access to a national and international technological entrepreneurs environment; mentors with well-known international experience in the scientific and business areas; Training Workshops specifically for technological entrepreneurs and Management Services (Marketing, Legal, Human Resources, among others).
