Twenty-three young people from Aleksinac, Zrenjanin, Irig and Ruma had the opportunity to develop skills and gain new knowledge about starting and running their own (social) business during this four-day training. Participants also had the opportunity to hear from experienced entrepreneurs – Dragan Kovačević, founder of Zequester and Marija Radojčić, successful entrepreneur and initiator of many entrepreneurship events such as Business Café, Entrepreneurship Square and Novi Sad Night Market.
