On September 15, 2022, a Networking Event dedicated to business meetings, networking and exchanges was organized and aimed to connect entrepreneurs in the green and circular sector who have been supported by GIMED for several months in order to enable them to exchange, to identify investors and investment opportunities among the participants who were present on this occasion, to learn about the latest trends in financing, innovation and green and circular entrepreneurship. This event was thus a panorama of opportunities for the entrepreneurs supported by GIMED!
