The plaform and the online materials are still available, so you are not to late to jump into the HILLARY world. Check them out!

Good luck with your social enterprises!
4th partner meeting in Leeuwarden
In June 2019 partners gathered together with the national winners of Start-up Women’s Cup in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. Besides the regular agenda to track the progress of the project, there was one even more important task – to pick a European winner amongst all the national winners. It was certainly not an easy task, but based on the Hillary canvases and pitch delivery, the judges have chosen Verde Agua (Spain) - an ecological consulting enterprise focused on dealing with the plastics issue, including labour environment, production and supply chain. It was created by young social female entrepreneurs, Sofia, Andrea and Luna. Read more about the competition HERE!
3rd partner meeting in Greenwich
Partners met for the 3rd time at “home” of our British partner, University of Greenwich. A vital step was taken into the finalization of the educational materials, for which we cannot wait to present to the future female entrepreneurs. The HILLARY Canvas that we have developed especially for this purpose will give those students a complete overview and guidance on many aspects of creating an enterprise. Looking back and also forward at the project, the partners are happy to say the goal is close!
2nd Partner Meeting in Milan
On the 14th and 15th of May 2018 the second partner meeting took place in Milan. Eurocrea Merchant hosted the meeting in BASE Milano. Base is a place where innovative projects in the cultural and creative enterprise sector are developed and carried out. A space unique designed to foster creativity and concentration. This was very inspirational for the partners.
During the meeting the structure and content of the Hillary course was discussed. The course will be divided into ten blocks: Purpose (Introduction), Customers & Beneficiaries, Market Research, Value Proposition, Revenue Model, Marketing Plan, Key Stakeholders, Key Resources, Implementation and Financial Plan. Each block contains an activity that will result in the Hillary Canvas; a business model to transform an idea into a business opportunity.
The next meeting will take place at the premises of the University of Greenwich in London on the 8th and 9th of November 2018.
HILLARY kick-off in Valladolid
On the 30th of November and the 1st of December 2017 project HILLARY kicked off at the premises of the University of Valladolid, Spain. The University of Valladolid is the lead partner of project HILLARY and responsible for the overall management of the project.
The meeting brought together the consortium for the first time to discuss and clarify the project objectives, timetable and to confirm the understanding of partners' role and responsibilities in the project.
In the coming two years the focus will be on integrating entrepreneurial education into humanistic universities curricula to foster female entrepreneurship. The project goal is to deliver an innovative entrepreneurial education model based on an E-learning course and the creation of an online community platform. This will be developed by a strong consortium of partners with experience and expertise in the field of entrepreneurship, coaching and mentoring, social innovation and female entrepreneurship at local and European level. Participating countries in this project are Italy, Lithuania, Norway, The Netherlands, Romania, Spain and the United Kingdom. The next meeting will take place at Eurocrea Merchant the 14th and 15th of May 2018 in Milan, Italy.
