Ready for private initiatives in the Barents region

A Norwegian group of the young entrepreneurs is contributing to cross-border economic and social development in the Barents region.

Young Innovative Entrepreneurs is an ENPI Kolartic funded program which aims to promote and support the economic and social development of the Barents region by facilitating young innovative entrepreneurs in order to contribute to the development of the employment and entrepreneurship in the region.

At an recent educational event at Sommarøya near Tromsø the entrepreneurs  initiated a roadmap aimed to promote the opportunities in the region and create enthusiasm about these opportunities and the region itself.

The participants were given presentations about the opportunities, and presented themselves, and their ideas, in a manner where they shed light the opportunities exploited by themselves, in order to show the diversity in the opportunities that are present in the region, but often forgotten due to the focus on oil, gas and shipping.

Eirik Mofoss from Tromsø already got in-depth cross-border experience from studying at the Norwegian, Russian High School in Murmansk.  Now he is one of the enthusiastic youngsters participating in the program.

 “I believe this is the beginning of something great! So many inspired and like-minded young people, all with the same predilection for entrepreneurship.  We have already created a valuable network. I hope we can stay connected between the events, both on a personal level and within the project in regards to helping each other and cooperating”, says Eirik Mofoss. 

Jenny Mikkelsen Spring, also participating in the program, highlighted the fact that this educational events was very inspiring and builds on a fundament where co-creation of value between the young innovative entrepreneurs is essential. She sums up the event as very successful and explains that she is already looking forward to the next event hosted by Young Innovative Entrepreneurs, a matchmaking conference that will take place in Tornio and Rovaniemi in mid-November.
