The Institute continues to conduct activities related to the Initiative, cooperating with municipalities interested in introducing a detailed and developed mechanism of support to youth entrepreneurs and with youth who wish to turn their idea into a business plan, and, with the help of their Municipality, start a sustainable and successful start-up business.
