Incubator Higher Achiever Award

It has been a year since the official start of the first Incubator program of HIGGS, during which we worked intensively with 6 newly established organizations in order to help them achieve their goals and vision.

Life in HIGGS is not just organizational charts, budgets, strategic plans, meetings, reports and deadlines! It also has the Incubator Higher Achiever Award, which is awarded every 6 months to an Incubee, or Incubees, with efficiency and, besides the moral satisfaction it offers, comes with a symbolic amount of money.

Winners of the 1st cycle of Incubator have been GIVMED and iSea, two organizations that have shown commitment to their growth plan and particular mobility in their actions!

GIVMED | Share Medicine Share life, is an innovative Nonprofit Organization which encourages and enables individuals to share their unused, unexpired medicines and save people’s lives.
