Workshop and Conference in Warsaw in the framework of Programme Young Entrepreneurs Succeed!


  • The partners of the TPM-RYE project got together, shared highlights and challenges and found solutions through best practice sharing.  
  • Youth Business International (YBI) run a session on mentoring, soft skills and entrepreneurship training to display the value of experiential learning.

The partners of the project “Scaling Trust-based Partnership Models to Recharge Youth Entrepreneurship: Supporting Underserved Communities with Innovative Entrepreneurship Support Instruments (TPM-RYE)” met last November in Warsaw for the EEA’s Young Entrepreneurs Succeed (YES!) programme workshop and conference.

The workshop took place on Thursday 28 in the Centrum Konferencyjne Zielna. It was an opportunity for partners to get together, share highlights and challenges and find solutions through best practice sharing.  

On Friday 29, Youth Business Poland ran a conference to present the project to its current and potential stakeholders showcasing how individuals and organisations can get involved to support more young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEETS) into the world of work and entrepreneurship. The conference was attended by some eminent people of Warsaw like Grzegorz Wolff, Deputy Director Labor Office of the Capital City of Warsaw, or Tomasz Szczęsny, Founder of four innovative companies and Blue Ocean Strategy Trainer.

Youth Business International (YBI) run a session on mentoring, soft skills and entrepreneurship training. One of the most popular activities was the magic carpet, run by Guillem Aris from Autoocupació, which aim was to display the value of experiential learning rather than standard lecturing and listening activities.

The sessions were followed by lunch and networking, where many new connections were made.
