To enhance the capacity of Macedonian youth to engage in entrepreneurship, CIPE, William Davidson Institute (WDI) of the University of Michigan, and Youth Educational Forum (YEF) have partnered to develop a comprehensive youth entrepreneurship training program for North Macedonia. Since its pilot in 2017, the program supports and encourages youth entrepreneurship and private sector employment across various sectors of the country’s economy.

We are joined by Stephen Brand, Entrepreneurship Consultant of the William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan, Martina Hrvolova, Program Officer for Europe and Eurasia at CIPE and Kim Bettcher, Director for Knowledge Management at CIPE.
