What is a regional CERIecon Playpark?
The aim of the CERIecon project is to support and encourage young entrepreneurs through an inspiring environment and additional training opportunities to create new firms, create new work places and even give them the chance to change the world with their new products and services. It will contribute to a change in the way entrepreneurs are inspired, trained and supported through a balanced package of strategies, actions plans, pilot actions, training and tools to create new-type comprehensive regional innovation ecosystems in seven Central Europe regions.
Seminars, workshops and mentoring support the development and implementation of business models and convey the necessary entrepreneurial knowledge. An international exchange with startups from the other project regions, network meetings and company visits complete the program.
The start-ups can develop their project at a free workplace for the duration of six months. For this instance, the seven different partners established so-called Playparks. Playparks are co-working spaces, equipped with everything a young entrepreneur needs for successful brainstorming sessions, workshops and mentoring by the supervisors.
