The Launch of the European Fellowship on Social Entrepreneurship

After the successful impact of the European Fellowship on Human Rights programme initiated by GEYC in 2015, we have decided to focus our attention on Social Entrepreneurship and to launch a similar programme on this area.

About the fellowship
Duration: October - November 2016 (2 months)
The European Fellowship on Social Entrepreneurship is an innovative programme developed by GEYC and supported by Impact Hub Bucharest and The Business Club aiming to develop the entrepreneurial skills of the participants.

The following activities will be included in the programme:

  • A youth exchange mobility in Porto, Portugal from 19th to 28th of October 2016 called "Entrepreneurship for inclusion";
  • 1 month free access to Impact Hub Bucharest in November 2016 (Hub Connect Membership);
  • Possibility to join the organizing team of an entrepreneurship project of  Impact Hub Bucharest in November 2016;
  • The Fellows will have the possibility to represent GEYC Community in other relevant events and projects during their fellowship;

Our Fellows will have the chance to interact with other entrepreneurs at Impact Hub Bucharest

About social entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurial skills are useful, not only to create businesses, but as a general tool to address problems: being pro-active and creative in addressing issues, be they prejudice or weak economic growth, is effective.Using entrepreneurship as a tool for inclusion will impact the personal growth of the participants, changing mindsets into a positive and pro-active one. 

By framing the issue of entrepreneurship within inclusion we will fight prejudice and, at the same time give participants the tools to have a positive impact in economic growth. A more prosperous society is better equipped to be a more inclusive one. Entrepreneurship is not a preferred option for most Europeans, neither as a career, nor as attitude, mostly due to the lack of essential skills and miss conceptions around this term.

Meet the fellows
Until you will meet them at entrepreneurship events in Romania and not only, take a look below so that you could recognize and greet them!
