PROGRAMS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF ENTERPRISES
Startup Weekend Novo mesto is an intensive business-entertaining weekend, where teams composed of individuals with different knowledge compete, who (in a very short time) will create a better prototype or business model of the company according to different methodologies (“d.school”, “lean Startup etc.) and also checked it on the market.
At the beginning of the event, participants with entrepreneurial ideas present them publicly and try to attract other participants to build co-operation teams over the weekend. This is followed by a motivational lecture of a successful entrepreneur, who is known primarily in the local area. The teams then have 36 hours to prepare an interesting prototype from the basic idea, which they present on Saturday evening at the closing event before the commission.
SUMMER SCHOOL OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP
The Summer School of Entrepreneurship is intended for all young people (ages 12 to 18) who want to learn the basics of entrepreneurship, team work, promote their creativity and try to test themselves before the commission. 4 day workshops involve a lot of field work, where young people are in contact with consumers and entertaining business challenges. Young people also develop their business ideas, test them, make prototypes and finally present them to the corporate commission. At workshops, young people are provided with mentoring help and entrepreneurial experience. The program is conducted during school summer holidays.
SUMMER SCHOOL OF PROGRAMMING
Summer school of programming is organized for students and other participants, who want new knowledge. Summer School of Programming thus helps beginners to understand the basics, learn languages and generally operate websites. With the acquired knowledge the participants will be able to upgrade their knowledge and make it easier to specialize in a certain field of programming.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN SCHOOLS IN FACULTY
Through cooperation with various school institutions we carry out numerous events, meetings, programs that offer young people entrepreneurial and other contemporary knowledge that they can not get in the education system itself. We want to encourage young people to become more active during the course of their studies in order to get involved in the entrepreneurial environment, raising the level of knowledge and competences. Since there is too little entrepreneurial initiative in the region, events and presentations also work towards promoting entrepreneurship among young people and other generations. In this way, young people are more employable and some will use their knowledge to open their own businesses and thereby generate new jobs.
By implementing entrepreneurship education we encourage the development of entrepreneurship in the municipalities of Dolenjska and Bela Krajina.
