Outdoor Sports Valley's Annecy Base Camp business incubator, the 1st business incubator in Europe dedicated to the sports, outdoor sports, and now mountain development industry (new this year), is launching a call for projects for the 3rd "class" of entrepreneurs who will enter the incubator program in May 2018.

The application will be available online as of February 8 on the website startup-basecamp.com. The deadline to send in an application is March 23. Anyone with an idea for a company in the sports, outdoor sports, or mountain development industries can apply to earn the opportunity to receive support to transform an idea from prototype, to product, to a viable company and business.

New this year: opening the application process to innovative projects in mountain development. Cluster Montagne has partnered with OSV to host and provide support to these types of projects thanks to a panel of experts currently working in the mountain development industry. Outdoor sports brands and mountain development companies are now working hand in hand to drive innovation and entrepreneurship.

As a reminder, the Annecy Base Camp business incubator opened its doors in 2016. Today, 12 entrepreneurs are still in the program and receiving crucial support for their startups. The program, created from scratch by OSV, has now been tried, tested, and proven: from orientation day, to individual coaching, by way of mentoring, group training, networking, co-working, cooperation between entrepreneurs, individual support, crash tests, jury evaluations, first disappointments and successes in sales… just a few key aspects of the business incubator that have set the pace over the last two years. Based on a now well-established concept and program, along with a broader selection process, the Annecy Base Camp business incubator will start its third year at full speed.

This year we will accept up to 12 projects for phase 1, which starts in May, to test each concept and validate the associated business model.

See you on February 8!

Put your ideas in motion! Join the Annecy Base Camp business incubator.
