1.GENERAL INFO

The new YMCA Incubator

Transforming your region. Promoting innovation in our communities. Empowering young people for active participation and socially driven entrepreneurship. StartUp YMCA is the first YMCA incubator, meant to be an engine for incubation and acceleration of business and non-business entrepreneurs willing to solve a regional, national or international problem through an innovative project. As we guide, advise and prompt networking between the incubated projects and our partnerships, we aim to provide the best mentorship and collaborative partners for these fresh concepts.

Call for projects - Startup YMCA Bootcamp

We're launching a Call for Projects for all YMCA Youth groups aged 18-30 with no limits on the number of young people that can participate. The selected projects will be chosen to participate in Startup YMCA Bootcamp, without any associated expenses at the location (including accommodation and food). The cost of transportation has to be supported by the participants or their local branches of YMCA.

The bootcamp will be on June 4th, 5th and 6th at YMCA Alambre Camp in Setúbal, Portugal.

The StartUp YMCA Bootcamp will provide a chance to generate, discuss, and implement innovative solutions to address social and environmental challenges by launching a project or launching a social enterprise. We're convinced that the global involvement of YMCA's youth (aged 18–30) will make a difference, not only inside the organization, but also take those projects back home and make an impact in our communities.
