On the morning of the 4th day of our youth exchange “Young Online Entrepreneurs”, we had the pleasure to welcome two representatives of the Macedonian entrepreneurship scene, Ms. Благица Ефтимова who works as an ecosystem facilitator with Swiss Entrepreneurship Program as well as a project coordinator with Startup Macedonia and CET platform Macedonia, and Ms. Angela Mitrinovska who is a coordinator at Seavus Accelerator and coordinator of digital marketing academy at Seavus Education & Development Center.
Our guests gave us very informative and educational presentations about entrepreneurship, start-ups, business planning and digital marketing. The presentations were primarily focused on the specific differences between startups, small and medium-sized enterprises, business accelerators and incubators. We have learned about business models and how to successfully pitch business ideas to investors and funding programs. Also, we have touched extensively on the topic of digital marketing and how to use it to drive, promote and grow our businesses and social causes.
As part of the presentation, we had the opportunity to pitch our company ideas from the previous day. Three teams pitched their ideas and received expert advice and tips on the structure of a successful pitch.
