“Young Entrepreneurs” is a business-educational program which aim is to bring together ambitious business-minded Norwegians and Ukrainians with one thing in common: Their passion for increasing investments and trade between in and between Norway and Ukraine. Despite of positive trade statistics and trends between Ukraine and Norway, Ukraine is still unknown for many Norwegians – meaning that we have not reached the full trade potential between our countries.
During two intensive weeks, one in Norway and one in Ukraine, you get first-hand guidance on creating and doing business in and between Norway and Ukraine. Throughout the program, the participants visit numerous Norwegian and Ukrainian businesses and meet with authorities and NGOs focusing on Business Ethics, Good Corporate Governance and Anti-Corruption. Moreover, the candidates work with concrete business cases that should lead into real business – as they did in both 2015 and 2016.
- Exchange of Norwegian-Ukrainian knowledge and competence
- Contribution of the development of international economy and democracy
- Building cross-boarder network between entrepreneurs, businesses and university professors from Norway and Ukraine
- Facilitation of cross-boarder business partnerships
However, it is not all about business; by joining the program as participant you increase your intercultural understanding and get friends for life. Through our Alumni network, you will meet the participants from the previous editions of Young Entrepreneurs.
Together with our dedicated partners, Nord University and Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (KNU), we look forward to receiving your application for Young Entrepreneurs 2017.
The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is general sponsor of the Young Entrepreneurs program.
