In July 2021, the Center for Support and Development of Small and Medium Businesses launched the first M.Start business incubator for entrepreneurs. 15 participants received knowledge and skills from the best mentors and trainers from different cities of Ukraine.
Participants learned the specifics of running entrepreneurship, writing a business strategy, market analysis, project management and pitching an idea. During the last month of their studies, they developed their own business idea. The projects covered various areas - from cosmetics to food production. Serhii Borkhalenko became the winner of the program. He presented the idea of opening a children's center for IT, Lego and robotics. The young businessman will receive EUR 3 thousand for the implementation of the project.
M.Start is a new and strong business community of the city, aimed at developing the potential of small and medium-sized businesses. The business incubator is aimed at improving the knowledge and skills of entrepreneurs, working with business experts and mentors, sharing experiences, introducing new ideas, development strategies and implementing their own business projects.
