This course will give them theoretical and practical training how to start and develop an idea, test its appropriateness, feasibility and profitability, study the subjective, objective and limiting factors and start their own company.
Through simulation of the actual business environment, young people from Bulgaria and Serbia will have the opportunity to gain practical business skills and experience, to exchange knowledge, to connect and learn from each other.
The acquisition of practical knowledge and experience in the real business environment will give support to entrepreneurship and employment, raise the quality of the work force in the border region, reduce the brain drain which will influence the regional economies and make them more competitive. This will strengthen the region and reduce economic disparities in the border region between Serbia and Bulgaria.
