The FINANCIAL — On 3-5 November, an intensive online pre–acceleration programme will be held for young people in Ninotsminda, as part of EU4Youth activities to develop social entrepreneurship in Georgia.
The programme is initiated by the Caucasus Environmental NGO Network (CENN) in partnership with the Impact Hub Tbilisi, as part of the EU-funded project ‘EU4Youth – Social Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Development (SEED) for Green Growth in Borderline Communities’.
The online business camp is designed for young people living in Ninotsminda Municipality and aims to support local youth in generating, developing and implementing business ideas aimed at solving environmental and social problems.
In total, 22 young people have registered for the pre-acceleration programme. The participants will work on practical assignments, engage in ideation sessions, and master skills for effective pitching of their ideas. The programme will host successful social and green entrepreneurs to share their experience with the young participants.
The main goal of the EU-funded EU4Youth SEED project is to create a favourable ecosystem for the development of social entrepreneurship and green innovation in the border regions of Georgia (Gori, Akhmeta, Ninotsminda) and Armenia (Lori, Tavushi, Shirak). The aim of the project is to discover the entrepreneurial potential in the most vulnerable municipalities and to promote entrepreneurship opportunities among youth.
