The project aims to motivate students to establish their own environmental oriented business. The project will offer courses that prepare students to start a private business and also enable them to acquire knowledge necessary for business with a positive environmental impact. According to Masaryk University research is the number of graduates, who start their own business, very small - only around 4%.
The structure of our project should increase both knowledge (economic for students of non-economic fields, environmental and law knowledge for economists) and students' motivation to business. Potential students interest in the business environment can demonstrate issues such as theses and dissertations in recent years and involvement in EkoInkubator project in 2006-2008 (OP RLZ 3.3.2). Connection of business and conservation support the growing market opportunities in this field. The project is designed for students at Masaryk University and in the case of so-called Summer school for other university students from selected regions.
