The main objective of the “BE YOUR OWN BOSS” (BYOB) project is to raise the self-confidence and motivation of youngsters to better initiate their entrepreneurial ideas, to share experience and opinion on
how to start-up and enhance competences in initiatives and employability.

Entrepreneurship is a personal challenge and a great opportunity at the same time. To boost entrepreneurship among youth means to develop employability and creating jobs for youngsters which has the fundamental importance for the development of youth employment policy. Young leaders with creative ideas often do not have a sufficient knowledge how to realize their ideas in practice and this project aims to share good experience and brainstorm to keep on track of developing entrepreneurship as well as to gain international contact and youth networking.
Overall, it was an exciting experience followed by visiting great places meeting and befriending people from different countries that would last for the whole life.
