The cycle of training on business skills has ended

As part of the "Accelerate Future HEI" project, the "Business laboratories 2024" training cycle has ended. During this project 26 young entrepreneurs from Limbažu and Smiltene regions, as well as Vidzeme University students, developed their business ideas and received valuable advice from already experienced entrepreneurs.

In a cycle of 6 lessons, the participants gained a deeper theoretical insight, as well as the improvement of practical competences and skills in the process of starting a business, creating ideas and design thinking, ways of innovation, creating a business plan, marketing knowledge, financial literacy and the art of presenting your ideas to potential investors. The theoretical lessons were led by university lecturers, while the mentors and inspirers of the young entrepreneurs were already experienced entrepreneurs-experts, as well as university graduates from very different fields. The development of entrepreneurial, social and various personal skills of the participants, the development of cooperation between the university and the local governments of the region, as well as the strengthening of the business environment in the regions can be noted as significant benefits of the Business Laboratory project.

At the beautiful and solemn closing event, the bravest members of the Business Laboratory presented ideas for the development of their robotics school, the production of an eco-grill, the creation of an application for people with autism, as well as the development of cleaning services for children's playrooms. A big gratitute goes to both Limbazi and Smiltene municipalities for the organizational and financial support for this project, as well as to all lecturers, experts, mentors, and, of course, also to the participants themselves - young entrepreneurs.
