Apply now: Business training in Athens

New business training and mentorship program in Athens for people 18-35

Through a new program in Athens, 330 young people will get free entrepreneurship training — and a few eligible participants will get a little start-up funding for a business of their own.

Solidarity Now, in partnership with the social enterprise Knowl and with support from the IRC, is holding business training workshops, each lasting for 2 weeks.

If you’re selected to take part in a "Business for Youth" workshop, you will develop the skills to take your first steps as a business owner and practice soft skills that are important for any job.

If you successfully complete the training, you will receive a certificate of attendance.

After the course, a few eligible finalists will get connected with a mentor who can coach them in developing a business plan, plus a small amount of funds to put toward their own business idea.
