Pacific Green Entrepreneurs Network
The regional Pacific Green Entrepreneurs Network (PGEN) is a 3-year project funded by the Qatar Fund for Development and implemented by the Global Green Growth Institute. The Network aims to support green and inclusive job growth by supporting entrepreneurs (particularly women and youth) develop their green and sustainable businesses whose business models include solutions aimed at contributing to their country’s climate and sustainable development goals in 6 Pacific Island countries – Fiji, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu.
Overall, the initiative is targeted at directly facilitating the creation of 3,130 greens job in the countries over a 13-year period, and indirectly improving the lives of over 12,520 people in those employees’ households. The three main components of PGEN are the Regional Ecosystem, Greenpreneurs Incubator and Greenpreneurs Accelerator programs.
The program work with local institutions supporting green entrepreneurship at the national level and support entrepreneurship in the region through networking and knowledge-sharing events in collaboration with stakeholders in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the region.
The incubator program will target existing innovative early-stage green micro, small, and medium-enterprises (MSMEs) with demonstrated growth potential that are still in pursuit of a scalable and repeatable business model through localised virtual and physical training and courses, a mentorship program, in-person events, and networking opportunities. Successful entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to participate in a business competition to secure grant seed fund capital of USD$5,000.
The accelerator program will target high-potential green enterprises in growth stage and offer interest-free loans in amounts up to USD$50,000 as well as a structured program for providing links with investors, training and mentorship program, in-person events, and networking opportunities.
Greenpreneurs incubator and accelerator participants will also have the opportunity in year 3 of the project to be selected to participate in an exchange visit to Qatar to visit and engage with Qatari businesses in the green sector.
