“High school student idea incubator” Start:up Maribor programme for students


The Start:up Maribor programme for high school students is known under the name of “High school student idea incubator” and focuses on developing the students’ entrepreneurial spirit and self-initiative. The students who participate will learn how to recognize problems worth solving and how to develop business ideas that could solve these problems. The programme encourages teamwork, informs the students, and encourages entrepreneurship activation.
 
The key tool for student activation are not only personal consultations but also targeted motivational entrepreneurship workshops. Motivated student teams with a good business idea recognized within these workshops and during personal consulting sessions will get additional free consulting sessions from excellent startup mentors as part of the Start:up Maribor programme. At the same time, the teams will participate in other activities of the Start:up Maribor programme, especially the Start:up weekend, intense month-long Start:up TOUR programme, Venture Factory incubation and the possibility of forming a partnership with Večer and other programme partners.
