Saldus Business School is gradually coming to an end.

Saldus Business School participants, more than before, have to fit into their new, well-developed business ideas, which they want to continue to start or develop, as the school closure is already very close.

Last week, when training was provided, participants were given practical assignments at home, on 29 and 30 November, in order to come up with one specific idea they would like to start or develop, taking into account so far, all the newly acquired knowledge. It was also commissioned to create presentations about their business ideas that the participants will present to mentors in order to further establish contacts for further work together in order to bring together a tangible and realistic end result. Some participants of the Saldus Business School also attended the “Coffee with Expert” event on November 30th, which this time was combined with an event held in Siauliai, Lithuania. They took part in an international conference on Globalization and Economic Patriotism: Dilemmas, Opportunities and Problems, as well as at the Business exhibition “SIAULIAI 2017”. New impressions were made, there was a chance to see what business there is and how it develops.
This week, the participants will meet on December 7th, when this time will be devoted to questions and answers at the evening. Participants will be able to ask questions about things that they still do not know, what they would like to know and what they expect from the mentors, who will be invited to participate in the mentoring session of 13 December. Exactly then, the participants will have to present their business ideas to the mentors, so that each participant can then find the most suitable mento, who will help him to further his business idea. Together, each with their mentor, either at the end of school or later, participants will have to stick to their business idea, business plan and all other business start-up factors, so that we all together  can rejoice in the new business ideas that will be realized and for the dreams that have been implemented.
For new entrepreneurs 🙂
