Young people are introduced to entrepreneurship over three days at Molenbeek-Saint-JeanMonday, 01 February 2016 00:59
On Friday evening, the forty or so participants present at the Centre d’Entreprises in Molenbeek, where the event took place, were divided into seven teams. These teams were given communication, sales, logistics, fashion and biological farming projects. On Saturday, with the help of experienced entrepreneurs, the teams worked on putting their ideas into practice.
On Sunday, the teams had 5 minutes to present their projects to the jury. The jury was made up of managers and experienced entrepreneurs. The most promising projects will get rewards, such as accompaniment and technical assistance, to help the candidates bring their projects to life.
According to the Digital minister Alexander De Croo, the “Molengeek” project is a great way to stimulate creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit in young people. They may inspire a young public, including those who don’t always have the right diploma or network, to start their own projects. Denise Campbell Bauer, the Belgian ambassador to the United States, also attended the event. She said she had always taken an interest in young people that want to develop their own ideas and initiatives.
