EBN partners with JP Morgan Chase Foundation to foster Inclusive incubation & acceleration

JP Morgan Chase Foundation (JPMCF) has recently become an entrusted partner of EBN. Within that context EBN wants to encourage our members to develop synergies with the JPMorgan Chase Foundation grantees active in the field of social inclusion entrepreneurship.

The project’s objective is to create a benchmarking system that can capture the level of diversity of business support intermediaries and respond to the results of the collected data through the creation of tools and resources that will help incubators/accelerators improve methods, practices, and processes for becoming more diverse and inclusive.

The project  will articulate around the following activities:

  • Quality screening of the JPMCF grantees
  • identify services already delivered by EU|BICs towards minority entrepreneurs (youth, migrants, women)
  • Exchange of best practices among EU|BICs and JPCF grantees
  • Production of reports and trainings on the subject

The aim is to enable small businesses from vulnerable groups to find more suitable support through EU|BICS and JPMCF grantees and to achieve more transparency and quality in the delivery of small business development services in the following countries: Belgium, France, The Netherlands,  Luxembourg, Spain and the UK.

The kick-off meeting will take place on 28 November in London where a few EU|BICs and JPMCF grantees have been invited to attend. Many details of the project will be agreed during this occasion and the activities will kick-start right after. The official launch ceremony will be organised on 25 January in Brussels.  More info to come soon!
