Entrepreneurial Academy

The initial step of a successful entrepreneur

For all enterprising individuals

Your start to launch a successful business

Let's get to know each other!

What is the Entrepreneurial Academy?

SCU launched the Entrepreneurship Academy with the aim of promoting entrepreneurship and self-employment. Given that the previous few generations of participants produced dozens of great people with a sense of business, we indirectly contributed to the creation of new jobs, increasing the quality of life of local communities and strengthening the startup culture.

After school, young people usually find themselves at a crossroads - which direction to go?

One path leads to employment in a good company. This option carries greater security and suits risk-averse individuals.

However, there is also a totally different type of person: daring, adventurous, with an entrepreneurial spirit, who values freedom and whose mind is preoccupied with business ideas.

If you recognize yourself in the description above

There is another way for you: starting your own business venture. Even if you first walked the first path and, in the meantime, realized that it is not for you, it is never too late to switch to the second one.

There are a lot of doubts at the start

With no resources, no experience, and no support from others, the danger of failure is too great. But developing one's own business brings the highest assessment of one's abilities. The Entrepreneurial Academy can help you achieve top results in business.

With the support of the municipality of Travnik

SCU invites people who have inclinations for business growth and development, people who plan to start their own business and want to learn modern techniques of successful business management, and people who want to expand their knowledge of modern techniques of successful business management.

Attendees from different age groups

That it is never too early or too late to venture into entrepreneurship is evidenced by our previous participants of the Entrepreneurship Academy, whose age range is from 18 to 50+.

A work approach adapted to you

Each participant of the Entrepreneurship Academy is special to us because of their different ideas, personalities, goals, and businesses. We will tailor the program according to your needs, wishes, and aspirations. 

Experts with qualifications and opportunities for collaboration

Behind the Entrepreneurial Academy are entrepreneurs ready to share their experiences with you and your colleagues. From socializing in the classes, fruitful collaborations between the participants can be born.

A tried-and-true strategy for success

Our greatest pride is that, with the help of the Entrepreneurial Academy, many of you have already managed to develop serious business stories. Become one of them yourself.
