Over the seven days of the forum, more than 200 participants from various parts of the world will get a unique opportunity to acquire new skills, present their projects and meet new partners for joint undertakings. “Developing entrepreneurship among our young people is a growth opportunity for Armenia and a priority for small and medium-sized businesses. We see what a huge potential our young people have today and how many talented kids are eager to implement their business ideas. This is why it is so important for us to consolidate our resources and stimulate entrepreneurship among our young people, creating conditions for such projects to develop,” Samvel Karapetyan, president and founder of the Armenian Business Association and founder of Tashir Group, said in his welcoming address.
