The 3rd and last Round Focus Group on the MYNNOVA project for Bulgaria was held on 15th November 2017 in Sofia. The purpose of the event was to explore attitudes, opinions, and feedback regarding the Euromentor Platform directly from representatives of the preliminary identified target groups of the project – young entrepreneurs, young social entrepreneurship and potential such.
The gathered feedback will be implemented in the online website and mentoring platform for young people, aspiring to design, plan and carry out social innovations to address current pressing national and European challenges. The platform is currently being elaborated by Law and Internet Foundation and will be launched later this year officially, offering a flexible and freely accessible opportunity for young social innovators to receive quality mentoring support from youth workers and in a long-term perspective (beyond project lifetime) from young entrepreneurs (peer mentoring/collaboration). The platform also provides valuable information on the topic, and training courses for young entrepreneurs and young social entrepreneurs.
The MYNNOVA project is implemented under the framework of the European Commissions’ Programme Erasmus+, within Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices, Action: Strategic partnership for youth. Bulgaria is in partnership with 4 other partners from 4 different countries – Romania, Slovenia, Germany and Cyprus.
