The project, intended for students from the City of Zagreb, organised the Student Business Plan Competition to provide students with entrepreneurial ideas to get their way into entrepreneurship. The competition was divided into two phases: the first phase was the admittance applications and establishing of teams. In the second phase teams developed their business plans with the support of their Mentor. Of these 18 Teams, five teams have been awarded with advanced education of entrepreneurial skills by experts from Development agency, Faculty of Economics and SEECEL. The winning team received training and the ability of pre-incubation in the Technology Park Zagreb, which includes work space and business advisory services, mentoring, networking and education for a period of 6 months.
Further activities include maintenance of advanced training for teams as part of our Start Up Academy and preparation of Brochure, which will include a compendium of seminars conducted and guidance for entrepreneurs with an overview of the most important skills that will be presented at the seminar. Following that, the video compendium with an overview of the most important skills and competencies for entrepreneurship will be available at the website and You tube Channel. They also leased the special web page of Vecernji list http://www.vecernji.hr/postani-poduzetnik/ which aims to inform potential entrepreneurs about the opportunities that City of Zagreb has to offer to all potential entrepreneurs.
