ArmInfo. From June 30 to July 2 an online pitching of business projects of self-employed Syrian Armenians, repatriates - residents of the SPARK program of the IRIS Business Incubator Fund was held.

According to the IRIS press service, the fund was created as part of  the "Enhancing the resilience of Syrian Armenians and the host  population" project with funding from the EU Regional Trust Fund in  Response to the Syrian Crisis (MADAD Fund), the Austrian Development  Cooperation Program and the Austrian Red Cross.

The SPARK program is part of the 3 main business incubator programs  (SPARK, BUILD and START) and is intended for self-employed Syrian  Armenians, repatriates and local residents who have business ideas  and who want to develop their business initiatives.

According to the press service of the Fund, 17 SPARK participants  from 70 residents of the IRIS Academy participated in online pitching  of business projects, who presented business initiatives in various  fields, from agriculture to hospitality and tourism, from textiles to  fashion, crafts, art, production, service, cooking, etc.
