    Екипът на ЕЦИ-БАН каним амбициозни млади хора на бенчмаркинг уъркшоп.

    Като осъществяваме проекта Balkan-Mediterranean Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, с този уъркшоп целим да анализираме слабостите при стартирането и развитието на предприемачеството.

    Очакваме - чрез електронно наставничество и директни консултации - млади предприемачи да успеят до края на този проект да поставят началото на своя нов бизнес. Неуспелите – поне да се осведомят допълнително.

    Уъркшопът ще се проведе на 22 май 2018, от 10.00 ч., в Конферентния център на БАН, блок 26Б.

    Повече ще намерите в приложените „Програма“ и „Покана“.

    Очакваме ви!
