Business Idea Generator for Youngsters with Lesser Opportunities
Welcome to Young Boss
Young Boss is meant for young people with business ideas to give them opportunities to develop the ideas. We give these youngsters the support that they would otherwise not receive. The focus is on youngsters, with lesser opportunities, from the ages 13 to 17. The lack of opportunities can be for any reason: them being refugees, living in rural areas, they are at risk for poverty or anything else. In the Netherlands, the focus lies on migrant youngsters/refugees that have just arrived in the Netherlands. In Croatia, the focus lies on those who are at risk of poverty or from rural areas. When youngsters are not part of these focus groups, they are still welcome to join, as we do not exclude any.
We believe that especially soft and entrepreneurial skills are very important for these youngsters. It is not our aim that all these youngsters become entrepreneurs, but we do want to teach them these skills, since they can be beneficial in many ways. They can help you build your network, connect with new people, increase your job opportunities or function in education.
