Tjaša Zornik (Slovenia/Web and grahic design, digital marketing) and Urška Starc-Peceny (Austria/Communication and storytelling)

How did HE Urška Starc-Peceny profit from the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme? Supported by Tjaša’s design skills, it was possible to visualize concepts in a very innovative way. She was able to listen, consult and finally transform an idea into a professional-looking graphic, a process to an infographic. A good quality visual presentation made it easier to communicate their ideas to the public. As a passionate communicator, Urška profited from Tjaša’s fresh ideas and perspectives in relation to ongoing projects. Weiterlesen …

Kristina Nikolovska (Slovenia/Robotics and automation industry) and Stefan Zeidler (Germany/Robotics and automation industry)

Kristina Nikolovska (NE): “I am very happy I got to do this program. I have gained a lot of knowledge about the robotic industry and how to run a start-up. Also, I got to improve technical skills and programming skills. I would encourage young people who are excited about becoming entrepreneurs and want to gain skill that they will never be able to gain otherwise to participate in the program. I had a very positive experience with the HE and the team because they accepted me as a part of the team. They divided the tasks and shared knowledge with me from the first day. Participating in the program was one of the best decisions I could make after graduating. With the knowledge I gained I feel more prepared now for the industry and for running my own business.” Weiterlesen …

Nastasja Minja (Slovenia/Psychology) and Valentina Bortolotto (Italy/Education and training services) – Corona Story

Since the corona crisis struck I have been staying in the house and complying to the restrictions of movement and social interactions. Not my cup of tea to stay inside and avoid physical contact with people, but what can we do… We need to have respect for others who suffer great consequences, if they contracted the virus. And since it is apparently extremely contagious and you never know how or where you can get in touch with it, we should all find the power within us to respect the quarantine and be patient until new rules apply.

I am keeping contact with my host through What’s App and am continuing with our collaboration online as many others decided to do. I am working on creating content for sport psychology (my profession) while at the same time being available for my host for any activities and possible help he would need from me that I can provide online. I adapted my first SMART goal to the current situation and will complete my work on time until the first deadline. Weiterlesen …
