In the last couple of years, we have seen an increasing number of entrepreneurs over the age of 45, with rich backgrounds from leading companies, taking the next step in their career and turn to the startups arena.
Our unique program is intended to encourage and support those entrepreneurs to develop unique ideas/projects/ventures/technologies into a promising successful business.
This year, we are happy to create MERAGE FUTURE 45, building a new model that provides a holistic, interdisciplinary and effective boosting system, as well as initial funding to the winner entrepreneurs to be used towards financing their business plan.
By assigning operational resources and capital, we will enable entrepreneurs at the age of +45 to take their ideas through the process of building a company.
