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.
Let’s work together
and make better societies grow!
RISE supports young change-makers in developing their impactful ideas into sustainable social businesses. Our tailor-made support program, RISE Journey, is being implemented by 6 Local incubators from different parts of Western Balkan region.
RISE activities are being implemented by six actors from the region – ARNO, Balkan Green Foundation, Nesto Vise, Smart Kolektiv, IEC Tehnopolis and Yunus Social Business.
