Young Entrepreneur Factory (Young Entrepreneur F..)
Young Entrepreneur Factory
Start date: Sep 30, 2003,
End date: Oct 30, 2006
The project aims to design and pilot a programme of activities to develop entrepreneurial thinking within groups of young people from 16 to 25 years, in order to foster their business attitudes, ideas and skills to create viable and sustainable businesses. An environment will be created to support young people to reach the stage where they can engage in business or enter a business incubator facility. Networks of young people will support each other and liase with transnational groups to widen, strengthen and stimulate their business vision. Entrepreneurial training, business simulation games, coaching, mentoring and ideas development will seek to create a confident and purposeful business community of young men and women to nurture the economic future of their regions within the NPP area. Expected Results: The YEF project will develop networks of young people beyond their local regions. Study visits to partner regions, the use of website bulletin boards and newsletters will extend the vision of young people beyond their local domestic market. The sharing of business ideas and approaches across the partner regions is recognised as a fundamental aim of the project and will improve entrepreneurship amongst youth in the project areas. The project will also establish networks of coaches and mentors involved with the young people and provide appropriate training to maximise their effectiveness in their roles within the project.
