This blog article acts as a repository for the current (May 2019) version of the Draft Program, which is a micro-funding program aiming to support nascent entrepreneurs from the participating education and research organisations. Draft Program(r) was founded in 2012 by Karelia University of Applied Sciences.

The purpose of this blog article is to record the information regarding the functionality and process details as expressed in the program’s public website and workshop slides. The classification is based on Object-Process Methodology. Should the program details change in the future, the version of the program information in May 2019 is kept safe here for future reference.
