JumpIN Hub is a recent Association, created in 2019, with a team of staff with diverse specializations (Social Education, Business Management, Marketing & Communication), which complement each other in order to develop focused activities promoting Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

As an Association we adopt a divergent and complementary focus:

  • policies focused on the community & people, so that they can develop personal & life skills to the fullest through active participation, practical learning – “learning by doing”, & the establishment of commitments between the agents of the community.
  • policies focused on companies & entrepreneurial ideas, promoting initiative & proactivity, supporting the development of innovative ideas & projects, promoting the training of entrepreneurial agents & cooperation between organizations/companies.

Following this, the Association offers various services & promotes activities in the areas of professional training & development of personal skills through formal and non-formal methodologies, in the areas of entrepreneurship & innovation, digital skills & communication, through workshops, seminars & other learning-promoting activities.

Our activities are mainly focused on:

  • Entrepreneurship: support & promote the strategic vision leading to the entrepreneurial spirit.
