Vision

The YES project shall become a good practice model for entrepreneurship and new firm creation in the region as an approach to developing promising new business ideas among well-educated youth.
Through its activities, YES will stimulate entrepreneurship and new firm creation among well-educated youth in Macedonia in order to:

  • boost the development of the SME sector and
  • bridge the gap between existing offers from educational institutions and the needs of the business community

Through close cooperation with SINTEF’s other incitements to entrepreneurship on the Balkans, the YES project offer explicit knowledge and skills on entrepreneurial support activities directed towards well-educated youth. The projects will be complementary to each other due to different target groups, and synergetic effects will be achieved through sharing knowledge on development on incubator and entrepreneurship course."
