About the Project
“mPreneur: Youth Mobile Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Future” stimulates capacity-building of young aspiring entrepreneurs and youth CSOs for usage of apps coding and ICT as vital skills for youth employability as well as for strengthening community resilience. Youth will develop sustainable innovative business mobile solutions to the persisting community challenges. Social mobile entrepreneurship is recognized as a special concept uniting the purpose-driven component of the businesses and the mobile technology used. mPreneur does not only stimulates skills sharing among youngsters, but strengthens the quality of youth work by building CSOs capacities for digital learning and usage of ICT for youth empowerment and employability, while gamifying the process through mobile app business competitions. mPreneur follows the major achievements of the first and the second editions of our mYouth CBY project. Exactly this potential to help youth choose their career path in entrepreneurship, while embracing new technologies and being socially aware, and on a different note, to benefit from mobile learning therewith becoming engaged and resilient and ready to embrace change, inspired us to deepen its content and provide solid foundation for sustainability of the project results after the project end.
