The Leader Project is implemented in cooperation with the renowned Ivey School of Business in London, Ontario, Canada. It was founded in 1991 by MBA students from the Ivey Business School with the mandate of empowering promising entrepreneurs in frontier markets to envision, launch, and/or scale new ventures. Through this approach, the Leader Project program aims to enable high-potential individuals to develop local business solutions that create opportunities for their communities. At this ten-day free-of-charge program, participants have the opportunity to learn through business case studies, which are part of the Richard Ivey MBA curriculum. The goal of the program is to educate Serbian young entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs on the fundamentals of doing business. Participants learn how to turn their business ideas into a reality or to successfully expand their existing companies in the country. We thus support the growth of Serbian businesses and entrepreneurship, which positively affects the overall economic development of the country.
The program is aligned with the mission of the organization as to help create a prosperous economic climate and a “stronger nation”. This program, in particular, aims at developing future business leaders and accelerating economic growth through improving and supporting entrepreneurship.
