How are we going to "venture an idea" together?

By engaging the knowledge and expertise of partners and associates on the “Venture an Idea” project, we will connect students and young professionals with experts and leaders in areas important for innovation and technological entrepreneurship. We will encourage them to join forces to launch new or upgrade existing innovation projects with the aim of increasing market success and commercializing innovation.

We will focus on networking and further development of infrastructure, education, available support programs, community strength and knowledge, and all institutions necessary for continuous systemic support for innovation. We will achieve this by creating new knowledge and opportunities, new courses at colleges, mentoring programs and numerous workshops that will involve students and young people, but also university professors, strengthen startup support organizations and their programs, and create publicly available information resources and knowledge.

Who implements the project?

Our goal is to, through the promotion of innovative, entrepreneurial and agile thinking, offer new opportunities that will lead to greater interest of younger generations to start their own business, develop technology and build business models for the future. Gathered around that goal, we teamed up with relevant partners to work on developing the Serbian innovation ecosystem.

The “Venture an Idea” project is lead by Initiative “Digital Serbia” in partnership with the Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University of Belgrade, Nova Iskra, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and SEE ICT, with the support of the American people through the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
