Challenge

Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) presents a vibrant landscape brimming with untapped potential and a rich talent pool eager to transition from traditional economies to innovative, market-driven ecosystems. The region stands at the cusp of transformation, ready to harness entrepreneurial education to ignite economic growth, stimulate innovation, and enhance global competitiveness.

Process

Our program took a sprint-based approach, breaking down learning into fast, intensive phases that focused on rapid development and real-world application. We emphasised practical tasks that not only taught the theory but also allowed participants to put these ideas into action immediately. This hands-on experience was crucial for setting the right foundations in entrepreneurial thinking and skills. By the end of the programme, participants were well-prepared to navigate the complexities of their market with a robust toolkit of strategies and practices. 

Solution

We brought the world to our participants' doorsteps. Our speakers, carefully selected from a pool of internationally acclaimed experts and industry leaders, provided a wealth of knowledge and experience. This rich resource equipped our startups with innovative tools and practices used by successful enterprises worldwide. Through collaborative challenges and personalised mentoring, participants transformed their ambitious visions into executable strategies.

Youth Entrepreneurship Workshops and Programmes

Youth entrepreneurship, paired with design thinking, effectively addressed community challenges. This method enabled young entrepreneurs to understand and innovate within their communities, creating practical, sustainable solutions through prototypes and tests. These community-led projects not only developed critical skills among the youth but also empowered local areas to actively influence their growth and resolve issues.
