Join us on 4 May, from 10:30 to 11:00 CET for the first webinar of our youth entrepreneurship mini-series.

In just 30 minutes we will see why there is a need to foster and encourage an entrepreneurial mindset in children at secondary school level.

What you can expect

During this webinar, you will learn about complementary practices that facilitate the entrepreneurial spirit of the next generations such as the holistic set of youth entrepreneurship practices present in East-Flanders, Belgium which include:

  • “Eureka, I do business” (an ECEF initiative), a very interesting play targeting students in their last year of secondary school. The practice has been ongoing for over 10 years and has reached and inspired thousands of students every year.
  • The Vlajo mini companies programmeaimed at last year secondary school students who after forming a group are invited create a company from scratch.

Practices such as these are important to realise the entrepreneurial potential of youngsters. In the long run they not only benefit the students but equally the whole local ecosystem.


Alongside one of our SME competitiveness Thematic Experts and moderator, Mart Veliste, we have invited experts in the field to share their experiences and recommendations with you.

  • Sarah Levecque, European Projects Coordinator from the European Council of East-Flanders, Project Partner in the START EASY project
  • Ianick Vandaele, secondary school education coordinator at Vlajo
