Young Adults: Young Entrepreneurs and Their Contribution to the Creative Economy

05 Jun , 13:00–14:00
Creative Business Forum
Pavilion G, Innosocium LAB

Today’s innovative companies, trendy businesses, and creative industries see the benefits and value of working with teens and young adults. Career guidance formats help to cultivate the exact kind of employees that a particular business needs. Children’s ideas and young adult’s projects form the foundation of innovative solutions, since young adults don’t yet know how to do it; they aren’t afraid to experiment and make mistakes. And after getting a legitimate opportunity to infiltrate the adult world, young adults then begin realizing their own plans by launching their own businesses. What kind of challenges do companies that collaborate with child creators of creative projects encounter? Can project activities in schools serve as a foundation for interaction between children and the adult professional community? Is there demand for young professionals on the labour market? Why are large businesses interested in launching their own career guidance projects and are they ready to cooperate with schools?
