Business for Youth

Business for youth is a student video project in Czech with English subtitles. Its purpose is to introduce people who started a business in their youth, or develop their idea and are successful today or are currently working on them and they are interesting. We want to motivate young people in the Moravian-Silesian region to do business. We chose the theme of video reports due to today’s attractiveness among young people. To this I want to add entrepreneurship workshops, which will help young people to transfer ideas, ideas, into a form where they will know how to start implementing them. So in the project we will deal with helping young people who say to themselves “maybe I want to do business, but I don’t really know how.   

Project objectives

10 reports With the help of these video reports, we want to spread among young people the desire to do business or not be afraid to implement their ideas. It is also our goal not to be afraid to contact an organization or individual that will help them, and at the same time we want to be just such a place for young people. For a start, we want to implement the project in the Moravian-Silesian region and then visit various places in the Czech Republic such as student centers, business centers or meet directly with these people and have an interview with them. Furthermore, at the end of the project we want to have a discussion for high school students, to introduce them to how the project went. We will find out whether the goals have been achieved from the number of views for individual videos. 4 workshops At the workshop, participants will learn how to perceive business opportunities, how to look for them, how to transform a project into a business model, systematically test a business idea with the market, get feedback from experienced entrepreneurs and create a stable business. The main output is the training of 20 active young people in the whole process of methodology for finding business opportunities and verifying the potential of the business plan with the market. 10 PR articles Articles and PR materials (stories of graduates) will also be created in cooperation to support entrepreneurship and raise the profile of the activities of all partners. All participants will also find that everyone can start a business regardless of location and thus in the Moravian-Silesian region. 2 new projects Create new projects, some of which will grow over time and provide new jobs.
