“Creativity takes courage”, Henri Matisse

“Entrepreneur Lab” is a 9-days long training course that brings together young entrepreneurs, youth workers, trainers and volunteers in which we explore the topics of social entrepreneurship and sustainability.

Are you a youth worker / trainer / coach / freelancer / designer starting your career?
Are you planning to open your own organization, create your own product or service?
Do you want to learn innovative methods of entrepreneurship?

It is an intense training designed for those who are willing to work on themselves and are coming with the intention to work on their own ideas. The whole program is highly experiential and based on “learning by doing” approach.

We start every day around 9 AM and have sessions during the day, also after dinner. The program only works if you put yourself in it, so we suggest to arrive rested and prepared in a way that in these days you only focus on yourself.

This training is for you if:

  • You want to discover the world of social enterprise with an intention of creating your own project, NGO or sharing this idea among people in your country in proactive way
  • You want to develop the competences of ’creativity’ and entrepreneurship’ through creative recycling techniques, body movement and other means of self-expression
  • You want to promote innovation in youth work by implementing new methods in entrepreneurial education
  • You are willing to experiment and explore, get inspired, learn, play, inquire, reflect and take actions on a spot

This project is:
– 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.
– a chance to learn how to get over your hesitation.
– an experiment with creative recycling and body movement as a tool for self-discovery and self-realisation, exploring your working style, values and goals.
– chance to work on your idea in a very practical way, by coaching and mentoring from the trainers.
