Review of the third Cohort in Slovakia


SK 3rd Cohort Seminar Picture1The third cohort of the „B-Innovative – Entrepreneurship for Better Business in Europe” project organised by the Slovakian project partner has been held in the east part of Slovakia, in Kosice.
The seminars were realized in cooperation with the University library of the Technical University in Kosice. This city was chosen because it was the European Capital of Culture in 2013. It is the second largest city in Slovakia with several universities and in our opinion it offers a good surrounding for start-ups. We conducted four seminars of the third cohort in four weeks. The seminars started on 18th October 2013. We had about 20 to 26 participants in each seminar of the third cohort.

EUrelations B-Innovative 2. Cohort review


2nd Cohort Seminar Picture Nr1The second cohort training was a full success. The course attracted much more participants than the previous one. On average there were 13-18 persons attending our courses.
The great majority of the participants had at least some working experience. Others had the master or doctor, but couldn’t find a job and therefore independence was somehow a stopgap solution. This mixture of different backgrounds created a good atmosphere and very interesting discussions.
Especially the last evening was a great success and all the participants really seemed to have enjoyed the courses and to have learned a lot.

B-Innovative: Evaluate and evolve

In the UK B-Innovative goes from strength to strength with over 170 individuals having already participated in the first three cohorts.  The make-up of participants has changed considerably, initially the programme was largely made up of students (92%) but now more than half of participants are currently employed, unemployed or members of the community.  This bears weight to the programme aim of supporting a broad spectrum of the local community, who have a business idea and ambition to push this forward participating in the programme.
