Slovenian Startup Enhances Education Via Entrepreneurship

Slovenian Startup Enhances Education Via Entrepreneurship.

Here’s how it works: high schools pay Ustvarjalnik to provide an after-school program, global events and entrepreneurship curriculum, and Ustvarjalnik in turn pays the mentor—a local entrepreneur who wants to bring the curriculum to their local community—a stipend for hosting the program at the high school. Each kit creates enough working capital for the program to break even within a couple months of being deployed.

School administrators in Taiwan, the U.S., Spain, Greece, Kazakstan, and elsewhere are eager to bring the programs to their schools because they empower kids and incite creative action—something greatly needed in today’s high-school environment. “We teach people how to empower themselves,” says Matija, “We’re enhancing education.”
