The war in Ukraine doesn't stop true entreprenurship

NUCC Young Entrepreneurs 2022 - A lot of students are letting go of red balloons that fly into the air, during a celebration
This summer brings together five groups of business minded students in four different cities in Norway. You can be one of them!

​​​​The Young Entrepreneurs Program is a business-educational program that aims to bring together ambitious business-minded Norwegians and Ukrainians with one thing in common: the interest in learning more about the Ukrainian and Norwegian markets and their passion for entrepreneurship and international business.

About the program​​

This year will be a special year for our Young Entrepreneurs. The war in Ukraine makes it impossible to conduct the program in a familiar format, where 4 groups work on business ideas while spending some time both in Norway and Ukraine. In 2022 we will have 5 groups working on market analysis while visiting four different cities in Norway: Oslo, Stavanger, Trondheim and Bodø!

Overarching goals:

  • ​Exchange of Norwegian-Ukrainian knowledge and competence
  • Research on the current status of Norwegian and Ukrainian markets identifying business opportunities
  • Contribution to the development of international economy and democracy
  • Building a cross-border network between entrepreneurs, businesses, and university professors from Norway and Ukraine
  • Facilitation of cross-border business partnerships

​The application deadline is June 19th, 2022 at 23:59 Oslo time.

Only candidates selected for interviews will be contacted.

The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is a general sponsor of the Young Entrepreneurs program.

Participation fee:

Thanks to a Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs grant, NUCC will cover all program-related expenses, including travel costs, accommodation, social activities, and meals.

Transportation to/from the closest international airport and travel insurance, visa application fee (if needed), and personal expenses are to be covered by each participant. This also applies if you want to extend your stay in any of the places in Norway.
