This project aims to identify new entrepreneurs in Kosovo which provides initial financial support in the amount of 10.000 USD from donors and philanthropists for their business ideas.

The main objective of this project is the identification and support of business plans that have high potential for success, significantly affect the social, environmental and economic performance of a particular community, or a wider group of community, with the ultimate goal realization of a sustainable business in the country.

One of the greatest challenges for today’s economies remains finding new forms of organization and commitment of local communities to ensure sustainable development, reduction of negative impact on the environment realizing a more equitable distribution of benefits.
