Business camps with young entrepreneurs of “Harry Fultz” and “Beqir Cela” vocational schools
Partners Albania organized two Business Camps to build skills of 140 young entrepreneurs to develop their business ideas and turn them into successful ventures competitive in the market.
The Business Camps were organized in the vocational schools “Harry Fultz” in Tirana and “Beqir Cela” in Durrës. The young entrepreneurs, under the direction and guidance of two experienced trainers from the US, created their companies around a business idea developed during the camps. They were also prepared to present and sell their idea to interested business companies operating in the market.
Minister of Social Welfare and Youth Mr. Erion Veliaj and the United States Ambassador in Tirana, Mr. Donald Lu handed the certificates for young entrepreneurs participating in business camps, in an interesting ceremony organized at school Harry Fultz on January 16, 2015.
In his speech, Mr. Veliaj encouraged young people to pursue vocational education, noting that unemployment is lower among those young people who attend vocational schools compared to those who pursue higher education.
Mr. Donald Lu, sharing with the youngsters the history of his brother who thanks to a brilliant idea and entrepreneurial efforts became a successful businessman, highlighted the importance of ideas coming from young people, as they are the most original.
