Youth Entrepreneurship Pilot in MacedoniaAugust 8, 2018 - 2019
CIPE contracted WDI to enhance an entrepreneurship and civic participation training program in Macedonia targeting recent university graduates (21-26 years old). To inform curriculum development, a WDI staff member and consultant traveled to Skopje, Macedonia in October 2018 and conducted over 30 interviews to understand Macedonia’s entrepreneurship ecosystem, as well as to strategize with the local implementing partner. With findings from this needs assessment trip, WDI developed a set of recommendations for enhancing the curriculum as well as the overall program.
While in Skopje, YEF invited WDI Faculty Affiliate Stephen Brand and WDI Senior Project Manager Kristin Kelterborn to be guests on their podcast, “Skills That Pay the Bills.”
