News archive - [Call Announcement] RISE Open Call to Support Young Social Entrepreneurs

The RISE project is launching its open call for applications for young entrepreneurs from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia to develop their social business ideas. Through a series of workshops, lectures, meetups, mobility programs and financial support, young people will have a chance to learn, grow, do business and at the same time help solve problems of their local communities.

Local incubators based in the Western Balkans are looking for young people from 18 to 35 years old from the region in a group of a minimum of two persons who are motivated to learn about social entrepreneurship and be involved in a regional intercultural program. They should be ambitious and committed to develop a concrete idea with social impact and ready to learn from other actors in the region. Participation in the RISE project develops young people’s skills and contributes to their employability.

The applicants should have identified a social or environmental issue they want to tackle and/or worked on their idea on a small scale, without being engaged in a real business activity yet.

To apply to the call for applications until 27 September visit the project’s website:
