Web platform for on-line entrepreneurship and startup education and promotion of entrepreneurial mindset
This Project was supported by US Embassy in Belgrade, and was in implementation from August 2014 to March 2015.
This Project supported Serbian Venture Network’s effort to develop infrastructure which can empower and motivate young people to start entrepreneurial journey. Such infrastructure is not fully developed, and that is one of the reasons why young people are not sufficiently engaged and motivated to become entrepreneurs. Some of the results of this Project contributed to creation of parts of that infrastructure, and represent sustainable base for further engagement of young people.
Project also focused on direct promotion (workshops, events, presentations), delivery of on-line instructor led trainings, multimedia content creation and advocacy efforts. There were 11 workshops, lectures and presentations aimed at direct promotion of entrepreneurship. Activities targeted high school grads, students, teachers and other professionals. Those activities were conducted in five cities and covered nearly 450 direct participants. On-line education and training platform was also developed through this project and it was used to develop curricula and deliver instructor led on-line trainings ‘How to start a startup’ and ’Investment Readiness’. Those were fully interactive trainings with webinars, video materials, chat, forums, all sorts of learning materials and quizes for reviewing the knowledge. There were more than 200 participants educated through these on-line trainings.
