YE Program 20/21: part one
Our Young Entrepreneurs Program 2020/2021 kicked off in the beginning of September and the participants are done with the first part. This year the groups are working on business cases within the four sectors (energy, manufacturing, ocean industries and tourism) and at the end of the program the participants will pitch their idea to investors.
The first part of the program covered such topics as entrepreneurship, branding, trade relations between Norway and Ukraine, Norwegian and Ukrainian market and business culture, as well as sessions on what investors are looking for. The format of the program includes lectures, discussions, group-work, business cases, meetings with companies, and social activities. The assignment for this year was a bit different from the previous ones: the groups had to come up with a digital business idea to solve sustainability challenges.
We would like to thank our partners BI Norwegian Business School and Lviv Business School (LvBS) for professional and educational support in regards to our YE programme. The second part will take place in the beginning of November and we look forward to the business idea presentations from the groups!
