The HIGGS Incubator is a free training and advisory program, especially designed for non-profits in Greece (AMKE, Somateio/Association/Koin.S.Ep./Social Enterprise for social inclusion), with the aim to help them build capacity in strategic planning, establishing the organization, commencing operations and, ideally, attracting their first funding.

The first 5 rounds of the Incubator were attended by 28 NGOs from all over Greece, who were trained in key issues related to their proper functioning, received advice from HIIGS experts, created more than 40 new jobs and secured 1,600,000€ in financing.

The program is directed to non-profits that:

• Are in the process of being established and operating as well as acquiring legal status.

• Have acquired legal status in the past 2 years and have commenced operations.

• Need a reboot, even if they have been operating for more than the past 2 years.

The Application Period for the 6th Cycle of Incubator lasts until 21 September 2020, 18:00

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Incubator program will be held mainly online.
