Another workshop within the Program for Sustainable Ideas, which was attended by young business start-ups that contribute to solving various problems in the community, was held on Thursday, April 28, with the support of our longtime associates Marko Moračić and Nikola Jovanović. This time, the participants worked on setting organizational goals in order to create a supportive structure in which the business can grow and develop together with the needs of users. They also got acquainted with Disney Method of creativity in order to test their ideas and standardize the production process. 

This workshop is part of our incubation program for start-ups with social and/or environmental impact and is the fourth out of six workshops that will be held until June 2022.   

Program for Sustainable Ideas is intended for young entrepreneurs who are developing sustainable solutions to the challenges in our society. Through a series of interactive workshops and 1-on-1 mentoring, young leaders get the opportunity to work with a team of experienced business mentors and experts to acquire knowledge and skills that will help them improve their innovative business idea. Meet 10 Enterprises that participate in the Program for Sustainable Ideas! 

The Program for Sustainable Ideas is being implemented with the support of the US Embassy in Belgrade and is part of the five-year strategy and program of the Smart Impact Fund – Fund for the Development of Sustainable Economy. The Fund strives to provide long-term professional and financial support to social enterprises in various stages of development and thus contribute to the development of an economy with positive social impact. By 2024, the program will invest about half a million euros in initiatives and companies that contribute to sustainable and positive changes in their communities.  

The Smart Impact Fund was launched by Smart Kolektiv in 2019 with support of the European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) and the former USAID-funded Framework for Giving project that was implemented by the Coalition for Giving led by the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation.
