On May 12th within the Why Not Me? 2.0 project, we organized the second webinar titled as: How to start your own business? Opportunities for using public funds and accelerator programs for startups.
We discussed about the available opportunities for young people how to start and promote their businesses from the perspective of state institutions and business accelerators coming from different regions in our country.
We had more than 50 participants and 4 great speakers:
-Kosta Petrov, Director of the Fund for Innovation and Technological Development of R. Northern Macedonia
-Lidija Angelkova, Program Manager, Preda Plus Foundation (Bitola)
-Sashko Pancevski, X Factor Accelerator (Veles)
-Igor Mishevski, Founder of Impact Ventures (Skopje)
The speakers shared their experiences, practical information and tips in order to motivate, encourage and encourage young people to become more interested in starting their own business, but also what are the opportunities, funds and other types of support available for young people to become successful entrepreneurs. Also, our guest speakers guided the participants through the entrepreneurial programs they offer.
