We believe in empowering young entrepreneurs. Social innovation cannot exist without innovative ideas coming from young people who want to start their own business.
The motto of the CRITBIZ entrepreneurship programme that we launched in 2018 within the national Start-up Plus programme is that we change perspectives. We chose this slogan because we want to do this on a regional level, but also on a personal one. We believe in creative ideas and in the attitude of changing the world for the better, and the program was set up to generate a change of perspectives in the entrepreneurial world in Romania, in terms of the desire to become an entrepreneur, of the perception on entrepreneurship, but also in the literal sense of the expression: to change the prospects of young people who wants to start a sustainable business.
Statistics show that young people of Hungarian ethnicity in Romania have a lower entrepreneurial spirit than the general tendencies. In addition to a framework that supports entrepreneurship in general, they need additional inputs, such as entrepreneurial courses and presentation of best practices in their native language. Through the Creative Cluj programme (Kreatív Kolozsvár) and the K Plusz talent promotion framework we want to help young creative people to self-accomplish and develop professionally, to expand and strengthen their professional relations system. Our general courses for beginner and advanced entrepreneurs, specific courses in creative entrepreneurship and management in creative industries, evening lectures and breakfasts where we present success stories and best practices in the country and in Europe have the same purpose: to encourage young Hungarians to start on this path of entrepreneurship.
