On February 25, 2020, Creotalents Project team together with the Youth Business Incubator ENU organized and held a training session for students of various faculties and universities of Nur-Sultan within the framework of the British Council Creative Spark Programme.
The purpose of the training was to motivate students and attract their attention to entrepreneurship, creating a real business based on innovative and creative business ideas.
The presentation of the project coordinator Nurmagambetova Armiyash was devoted to the creative economy, various current business ideas in the creative industry and Creotalents project.
ENU students who are the residents of the Youth Business Incubator, young entrepreneurs Kabiev Aslan and Kundakbayev Diar shared their experience in implementing their ideas and creating a business. Participants of the training, in turn, actively asked questions.
In addition, great interest from the audience was caused by a video story of Jeannette Artykova, a young girl from Turkmenistan who is engaged in creating handmade jewelry. She also spoke about her business, product promotion, and the challenges she faced in practice.
