The project assumes organization of workshops for students concerning practical aspects of cross-border entrepreneurship in V4 countries. Every university will represent five students who declare an intention to set up own business in cross-border environment.

  • create new international contacts thanks to personal meetings in international teams.

In workshops representatives of business will attend, presenting and advising students about cross-border entrepreneurship. Workshops will create proposals of cross-border start-ups, which could exist in the future. The representatives of every university will award the best idea for setting up a business.

This passion should transfer ideas into real companies in the future.
