RISE improve access to social entrepreneurship for youth in Western Balkans

The RISE (Regional Incubator for Social Entrepreneurs) project believes that youth of the Western Balkans are talented, full of innovative ideas and eager to achieve them. That’s why we want to support social business ideas that will make the region a better place. 

RISE focuses on cooperation, ideas exchange, and peer learning. We believe that when you bring youth together, we can learn, grow, and make a change. 

Social entrepreneurship is a great tool to empower the change-makers and bring them to action. RISE creates a regional network of Risers, young social entrepreneurs, and supports them in making their ideas a reality.

After the success of the first cycle, the RISE project has been renewed for three more years with the support of its partners. Together, let’s make the region a better place!

With the ambition to make a change in their surroundings, our young changemakers, the Risers, are developing their social business ideas.
