“Entrepreneur Lab” is a 9-days long training course that brings together young entrepreneurs, youth workers, trainers and volunteers from organizations coming from Bulgaria, Hungary, Croatia, Greece, Poland, Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal and Spain, creating a diverse group in which we explore the topics of social entrepreneurship and sustainability.
In this project you get an opportunity to work on your skills, knowledge and attitudes supporting you to take steps towards growing your own ideas and turning them into reality. We explore qualities such as flexibility, creativity and innovation, and we dive into the spirit of initiative and proactive behavior. You have the chance to learn how to get over your hesitation, self-doubts, how to make decisions and commitment, how to work in a team and how to communicate with your target groups. We approach design thinking and business planning, with a special regard to its social and environmental aspects. You experiment with creative recycling and body movement as a tool for self-discovery and self-realisation, exploring your working style, values and goals.
On one hand we work on skill development by the methods of creative recycling and body movement, and on the other hand you have the chance to work on your idea in a very practical way, by coaching and mentoring from the trainers.
