THE SUCCESS STORIES
When we started working on this project, apart from the research that we will do across different countries to see what is the situation in regard to young people with fewer opportunities, we said that we want to develop different methods that will potentially inspire other young people to plant that seed, to make that first them that can transform person’s life.
So we asked ourselves – what is one of the best ways to motivate young people, to initiate that spark that changes lives, to discover that talent that makes them passionate and dedicated so they completely devote their lives to it?
Our answer was simple: “Success stories”. To look across Europe for young people with fewer opportunities that have made it happen. That gathered the courage to open their company and now they are living the dream with all pro´s and con´s that it brings.
But then we asked ourselves, what kind of stories are we looking for? What kind of youngsters, which type of companies or how do we define their success? This information will be shared later on with the results of our research.
