The project „StartUp Your Social Enterprise” it will be a very active training course, that will involve at least 20 partners, during 10 days. The aim of the project is to develop the entrepreneurial spirit and skills among 20 participants, which have already a social business-plan. The participants will be encouraged to start their own social project and to develop their intercultural education by involving non-formal ways of thinking and act. During the project period, in ten days of properly working, the youth will participate to several workshops where they will learn more about management, marketing, entrepreneurship and where they will be able to develop their skills by creating a social enterprise.
The group will participate to a social enterprise simulation where they will learn how to create, lead a team, promote their products or services and how to run a social business. The simulation will be realized with youth with fewer opportunities from the community.
During the training course the participants will have the chance to work with youth with fewer opportunities and develop in this way their solidarity and social entrepreneurship skills. This training will be a space to learn and share, so we expect that each partner/team will be an active part.
The project will be hosted in Tirgu Frumos and Iasi, in September 2014. For two days, the group will go in Cluj-Napoca (the heart of Transilvania and the Youth Capital 2015), where they will participate to different types of events in order to promote their ideas, learn more about non-formal education, do networking. At the end, depending of their personal involvement, every participant will be able to start-up his own social enterprise.
