YBR participants sharing experience at the Forum of Young Entrepreneurs in Voronezh
On November 24, 2011, the Forum of Young Entrepreneurs was held at the House of Children and Youth Non-Formal Education in Voronezh. The Forum was organized by Entrepreneurship and Consumer Market Department of Voronezh Region in the framework of long-term regional target-oriented programme “Development and support of small and medium-size entrepreneurship in Voronezh Region for the period of 2011-2015”.
Among the participants of the Forum were young entrepreneurs, students and young people from all over the Region who intend to start their own business in future.
Seminar “Ideas for business. First steps in implementation. Business planning. How to write business plan? Sources of business financing. Presentation of business ideas and business projects” was on the agenda of the Forum, and was held by Irina Babushkina, loan coordinator of the Youth Business Russia programme (YBR) in Voronezh Region. The Forum was also attended by Irina Gorelova, YBR coordinator in Voronezh Region (made a presentation on YBR activity in Voronezh Region) and several young entrepreneurs receiving YBR support (Tatiana Zyablova, Elena Temnaya, Evgeny Razmashkin, Alexander Matyukhov), who told about their business activity, challenges, achievements and plans for the future.
The seminar aroused much interest on behalf of the youth since it provided first hand answers to their vital questions, and despite many of them had to sit on stairs or stand (the room could hardly accommodate all who wished to attend), even when the seminar was over, lots of participants held off and continued to question closely about organisation of private business.
Besides, Yuri Segal and Viktor Alifanov, YBR mentors, participated as experts in business ideas evaluation.
