We’ll be showcasing our aim of Economics school and its Regional centre for entrepreneurship of south-east Serbia, which is to stimulate gender equality, women and girls enterprise. We have succeeded so far since the girls’ population is dominant in our school. They are stimulated by formal and informal education to express their potential, ideas, creativity and inclusive work.

Their business ideas brought numerous recognitions and awards at national and international competitions. The national competition “Na Pred”, by Regional agency of Serbia, enabled our students to take part in panels, important talks on women enterprise, promotion of their business ideas in the Chamber of Commerce of Serbia and negotiations with real investors. Their ideas tend to diminish inequality within the country between the much more developed north and the developing south where our city and school are situated.

Their formal knowledge together with well-supported business ventures will connect urban to rural areas and make them better for the future. This collaboration is supposed to enable partnerships important for sustainable development. The Economics school in Nis has encouraged and supported about a hundred student companies and business ideas which were promoted at national and international competitions and fairs. They simulated real performance of companies which earn a profit.
