The videos will include interviews with Kosovo examples, clarifying the actual situation and giving information and knowledge from the online course which we have followed about the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Cleveland, Ohio.

In orderto initiate the agencies and institutions accountable for improvement of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Kosovo, we will arrange meetings in several cities throughout Kosovo, outcomes of which will also be posted and shared with everyone.

As we know the economic actors of Kosovo are constantly seeking solutions to create new jobs and stimulate economic growth. Through our project, we aim to find great programs to stimulate entrepreneurship in almost every region in Kosovo. Participants in the one day Conference will be representatives from state institutions, private sector, Non Governmental Organizations, Business Angels, Civil Society etc, where they will hear about realized project activities, and discuss about joint effort in order to improve the climate for entrepreneurial support. For our conference, we will invite Prof. Michael Goldberg from Case Western University to share with other participants some creative ways for support of entrepreneurs in Kosovo.
