The Youth Entrepreneurial Service Foundation, BSC Bar and Innovation Center Banja Luka are launching a regional civil society network named “Western Balkan Youth Entrepreneurship Alliance” committed to identifying innovative and effective approaches for local and national governments to boost entrepreneurial ecosystems.
The Western Balkan Youth Entrepreneurship Alliance has a mission to empower civil society and influence local and national policies towards more enabling environment for young entrepreneurs and sustainable enterprises in the Western Balkans.
One of the first tasks of the Western Balkan Youth Entrepreneurship Alliance will be creating an Advocacy Toolkit for youth entrepreneurship in times of Covid-19. The Advocacy Toolkit will be a comprehensive document that will provide guidance on how to advocate for a more enabling environment for young entrepreneurs during this time of crisis. The Toolkit will be developed by involving CSOs from all Western Balkan countries that will work together to provide policy recommendations for the public, civil society and private sector.
The Youth Entrepreneurial Service Foundation and its partners are supported by RYCO within the 4th Open Call for Project Proposals co-financed by the European Union.
