Who are we?
Albania’s Business Generation is an organization started by four students on March 2016 to empower entrepreneurship within Albanian youth. We launched the first entrepreneurship camp for high school students in Albania as two, a 15-day (in Summer 2016) and then an 8-day (in Summer 2017), intensive boot camp for students to take their business ideas from zero to hero. Our efforts have lead to the facilitation of the integration of Albanian youth in the startup community, providing tools to bring entrepreneurial ideas to life, and educating the Albanian youth on the subject of entrepreneurship and new ventures. Until now, we have selected 106 students to participate in our programs — impacting the lives of 106 young aspiring entrepreneurs.
We aim to change the opportunity perception of Albanian youth. According to GEDI, Albania ranks higher than the world and regional averages for Start-up Skills but lower than both for Opportunity Perception. Thus, we make it our mission to empower aspiring entrepreneurs in Albania and shift their opportunity perception to undertake more risks.
All of our programs are geared towards the hands-on and/or practical education of entrepreneurship. Below are some numbers to show to what extent our programs have impacted the youth in Albania.
