Sara Idzig (Slovenia/Health and wellness) and Dimitrios Zachos (Greece/Health and Wellness)

Sara Idzig (NE): “I have decided to participate in the EYE program because I wanted to experience how a successful dance-movement therapeutic company works and survives even in challenging times such as the Covid19-year. I am much of a kinaesthetic learner who needs to try out things to really understand the mechanism behind them. Having a chance to learn from the experienced entrepreneur who happened to work in the same field as my profession is, was a not-to-miss opportunity for me. I was not sure what to expect but I got exactly what I needed, not only for my professional development but also for my personal growth. My fears, doubts, and questions around ‘how’ to become a successful young entrepreneur were grounded through this monthly exchange. I strongly believe that it is through relationships that we exist, develop, and become. And it is only now that I am starting to understand that the same logic is true in business. I am determined to start focusing on relationships in a broader context, using my psychotherapeutic knowledge to enrich and extend my business network. From there on I am sure I can not only grow but become – an actual entrepreneur. I am grateful for EYE and the HE and I hope Greek-Slovenian collaboration extends past the dates planned for future projects with the HE.” Weiterlesen …

Dayna-Ashley Gross (Hungary/Publishing) and Victoria Gosling (Germany/Publishing)

Victoria Gosling (HE): “I can’t thank Dayna enough. When lockdown happened, our plans were thrown into disarray, but she was absolutely unflappable. She supported me during a hugely challenging time for The Reader. Via our Zooms, Dayna offered support and solutions and I credit her with creating a wonderful audio series that helped keep our following interested during massive disruption. I’m not sure how I would have managed without her.” Weiterlesen …

I am pretty sure we will collaborate also in the near future”. Weiterlesen …

Maja Kaninska (Serbia/Communication) and Milutin Jošić (Slovenia/Consulting, Marketing, and Communication)

Milutin Jošič (HE): “At the very beginning, young entrepreneurs need to get confidence through knowledge and practical experience on the field. Maja is a hard-working person, very focused and goal-oriented, with excellent analytical and communication skills. It was a unique opportunity for me to mentor her. The best reward was when I noticed how she was gradually becoming more and more independent and self-confident while she was fastly learning both in our office and on the field. After six months of exchange, she is ready to run her own business, and it will be my pleasure to continue collaborating with her on a professional level in the coming months.” Weiterlesen …

Lenka was the ideal type of young entrepreneur to work with as she is very motivated and at the same time shows deep respect for the life around her and for nature. I believe that we really need skilled and sensitive entrepreneurs such as Lenka, and I hope to stay in touch with her to be able to share new entrepreneurial endeavors together.” Weiterlesen …

Giuseppina Vampo (Belgium/Sustainable Tourism) and Emilia Blasi (Italy/Organic Agriculture)

Giuseppina Vampo (NE): “Flexibility has surely been the best practice I learned during this period: even when facing the most frightening and unexpected events, in order to go ahead and don’t lose all the work and efforts made until that point, the only thing to do in my opinion is ADAPT our objectives and skills to the new situation, without losing positivity and confidence in the future.” Weiterlesen …
