Revitalizing Cordoba/Andalucía & empowering communities through culture, sustainability, and wellbeing.

Do you have a business idea that can boost culture, eco-friendliness, wellbeing or inclusion? Your passion can become a successful business, and we’re here to support you. We’re looking to offer 50 entrepreneurs with free mentorship, educational tools and connections to turn cities like Cordoba in Andalucía into a more inclusive city.

Your business can create wellbeing, employment opportunities, inclusive strategies, and creative outlets for the people of Cordoba & Andalucia.

As part of the EU Horizon 2020 project, we are in our second year of supporting initiatives aimed at transforming our city into green, inclusive, and creative spaces for public enjoyment. Our objective is to establish the foundation for a brighter future and then apply this knowledge to benefit Las Palmeras or other vulnerable areas of Andalucia, striving for fair and equal access to health, employment, and well-being.

Whether you’re passionate about social opportunities, a leader in tourism strategies, a visionary in cultural projects, or a business dedicated to promoting inclusivity for all, we invite you to join us on this transformative journey!

We believe in the profound impact that cultural heritage, nature, and inclusivity can have in a city's quality of life.

This commitment drives us to support a second cohort of startups that share our vision of making Cordoba and others in Andalucía cities with opportunities for all!

What is IN-HABIT?

IN-HABIT is an EU Horizon 2020 project that aims to foster inclusive health and wellbeing (IHW) in four peripheral small and medium-sized cities (SMSCs): Cordoba (Spain), Riga (Latvia), Lucca (Italy) and Nitra (Slovakia). In each city, the project will mobilise existing undervalued resources (culture, food, human-animal bonds and environment) to increase IHW, with a focus on gender, diversity, equity and inclusion. The integrated approach will combine technological, digital, nature-based, cultural and social innovations in selected urban public spaces. These solutions will be co-designed, co-deployed and co-managed with and by local stakeholders.

The platform at a glance

As the backbone of the programme, the plaftorm offers a gamified and step by step experience that allows entrepreneurs to create their business plans and validate their model. Far from theory, the pedagogy pushes you to formulate your ideas and answer the tough questions.

It invites you to “get out there”, talk to people, research, and validate your ideas. Your mentor will be there for you every week to support you by challenging assumptions and offering a fresh perspective.
