About the Project


The project ECAPITAL – Adriatic Start up School:

ECAPITAL CULTURE takes inspiration from ECAPITAL – Business Plan Competition, which since 16 years promotes the creation of innovative enterprises in the Marche region (Italy), involving young university students in the launch of business projects. More than 70 enterprises were born thanks to this project, involving more than 500 young workers.

ECAPITAL CULTURE is a training path oriented to the development of innovative start up working in the cultural tourism field and aimed to enhance the cultural heritage of the Adriatic – Ionian Macro Region. 

The primary objective of the project is to create the conditions so that the young people of the countries of the Adriatic-Ionian Macro-Region (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia), making use of their skills and their creativity, can achieve their own business idea.
The project represents a real opportunity to develop the economy of this area and to increase professional employment with start up creation.

ECAPITAL CULTURE is above all an educational experience, which helps young people to develop their own business ideas in the field of culture, allowing an important link between the academic and institutional world and the business and financial one.
