Facilitating business start-ups

Sep 19, 2013
Nordea business school opened its 4th training season aiming at supporting new entrepreneurs to start-up successful businesses. Jointly with 26 partners, leading business consultancy companies in Latvia, mentoring and coaching organizations, and industry experts, the future entrepreneurs have received practical advice for developing a competitive business in six months. The schedule of lectures is open until May 2014. You can follow recent news of the Nordea business school in Facebook.

"The program continues to prove its usefulness as new applications for business ideas are received every year-over the past four years almost 3000 business ideas have been submitted, 200 young entrepreneurs have participated in training in classes and one third of them have been successful at starting their own business. We are especially proud of one of the achievements of the program. This is cooperation among our partners and the professional team of lecturers as well as the graduates of the program who share stories of their experience every year," says Kristīne Lomanovska, Head of the Nordea SME Segment in the Baltics. She added that, "the success stories of the graduates also serve to attest to the program's quality. For example, the modern coffee production company Andrito Kafijas Grauzdētava, exclusive wooden covers for mobile phones RixWood, the clothing brand manufactured in Latvia PAIYA and many other brands of the graduates of the Nordea business school have gained recognition both in Latvia and abroad. 90% of the graduates of last season admit that the program helped them to promote business development, and we think this is a very high indicator."

Together with AmCham we can develop our networking not only in the local market with local companies, but also reach out to good partners far away from Latvia.
