The main goal of the project is to build an international start-up acceleration program in three countries of the Western Balkans, which will make the support of budding entrepreneurs and start-ups in the region more effective. The project builds on SOVVA's previous activities in the given sector and the given region, the result of which was the creation of an international start-up program in Albania. The goal of this project is to expand the entire program to other countries of the Western Balkans, primarily to Kosovo* and North Macedonia. The UPLIFT acceleration program prepares start-ups and young entrepreneurs for entrepreneurship through intensive and practical training. The training provides in-depth and focused education aimed at business development, as well as improving the ability to present your company and thus also attract investments or clients. In the project, SOVVA also plans to focus on training program managers in Albania, Kosovo* and North Macedonia through consultations with experts and managers of start-up acceleration programs in Slovakia and by creating a platform for developing relations with program graduates.
