CBI and Mechanical Faculty Skopje supports entrepreneurial and innovative thinking among students
CBI aiming make a change in the Macedonian startup scene, is sponsoring the ideas from the subject of Engineering Economics at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Ss.Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje. Together with prof. Dr. Valentina Gecevska and assistant. Ema Vasileska, MA, we will enable students to present their business ideas that they are working on during the semester at the Launch Me hackathon, with the best three teams getting the opportunity for commercial development of the ideas. Through this, student ideas get the opportunity to be validated by the real sector and the teams what it means to be an entrepreneur and a leader.
The aim of this initiative is that students do not work just for the grade, but for the opportunity to realise their business ideas so they do not “stay in the drawer”. The students are given support and professional help for further development towards their own start-up. Further to this, through the Launch Me hackathon, students get the opportunity for commercial development of the ideas and their validation by the real sector and the teams.
