The second project that we are running and is focused on Social entrepreneurship is UPSHIFT, a Project supported by UNICEF, Fund for Innovation and Technology Development and Ministry of Education and Science.
The project is focused on developing business ideas into Social Enterprises by youngsters. Through 3 three-day social impact workshops, young people from 13-19 years old can develop their business ideas and win a 2000eur to implement them. The winners get a 3 months mentor support in the implementation of the business idea.
So far, we have implemented 2 workshops with 85 participants who were developing 20 amazing ideas with social impact on the community. 10 of the teams were selected as winners during the pitch presentation. They were awarded 2000eur to continue to develop their ideas and make an impact on the society.
