Fleur from Utrecht most successful Summer Entrepreneur of the year!
Bas from partner Gemeente Utrecht
The annual ZomerOndernemer (Summer Entrepreneur) project took place this year for the ninth time in the Netherlands. Organized by The New Entrepreneur Foundation, its goal is to introduce young people to entrepreneurship. It’s become a very successful initiative. In 2015, ZomerOndernemer won the Dutch final of the European Awards for Entrepreneurship Promotion. Aimed at youth between 15 and 22 years of age, ZomerOndernemer helps them start their own business during the summer holidays. Participants receive support from professional supervisors who give them training, advice and tips to help them succeed. Youth work on their business in their own time and each week, they meet with a group to discuss the progress. The ZomerOndernemer takes about six weeks and participants choose whether or not to continue with their business after the project.This year, the regional pre-selection took place on 17, 18 and 19 July in /.the grid at Dotslash Utrecht.
