What is Start Young?

393660371_741034424704953_2033848785858299930_n.jpg

"Start Young" is an event of "Bulgarian Entrepreneur" magazine and "Start Young" Foundation, which transforms the lives of young people!

It's a unique journey from casting to finale, filled with innovation, education and exciting challenges.

Guided by inspiring mentors, participants develop real startups, create value and learn lessons that transform the future or intern at established companies and fight for a permanent employment contract.

Here, everyone has the chance to connect with like-minded people, discuss ideas with business leaders and get feedback, as well as find their dream job.

Participation is completely free for young people, and our mission is to inspire, educate and promote the next generation of enterprising Bulgarians. Together we can turn dreams into reality, harness the power of community and create real change

How does an event go?

19:00 BEGINNING of castings

HALL I WANT TO START A BUSINESS:

The young people will present their startup idea for 40 seconds and will have the opportunity to contact a mentor from the business, with whom they can develop a business plan and present the ready-made opportunity to a jury and investors who will support the idea. HALL LOOKING FOR A JOB:

Young people will present themselves within 40 seconds and will have the opportunity to be hired on an internship, and after that on a permanent employment contract.

21:00 END
