Due to the high unemployment rates of young people in Georgia, the goal of the project was to provide students with incentives, know-how and ideas as a way of improving their chances on the job market. To do so, students from Germany and Azerbaijan travelled to Georgia to visit their fellow students. First of all, they worked together with their lecturers to discuss the conditions and challenges that start-up companies face. They then visited a number of practice partners where they worked out solutions to current issues.
Over 93% of participants claim to have learned a great deal and have noticed an improvement in their entrepreneurial knowledge. The recommendation rate is 100%. This is mainly due to improved job market opportunities, the internationalisation process and the programme that broadens horizons.
The project is based on previous projects in Azerbaijan (2016) and Georgia (2017). The project “Tri-National Learning and Consulting Teams for Georgian Start-Ups” was a consistent further development of the format. All the feedback and reported experiences have been positive. The combination of excursions, educational courses and independent project work proved to be particularly enjoyable and will take place again in September 2019 in Azerbaijan.
We are already looking forward to it! This was indeed one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Thank you very much for such a great opportunity. Thanks to the faculty members and students for this great project. I’ll make sure I put it into practice and I’ll keep you posted about the results.
The project was implemented on the premises of our cooperation partner Tbilisi State University. The Georgian students worked together with students from Azerbaijan University and Koblenz University on the current topics of our practice partners.
For this purpose, lectures by Prof. Dr. Magdalena Stülb, Prof. Dr. Davit Narmania, Dr. Gabriele Wolff, Sven Binder, Laura Waerder, Andro Debugadze, Sofiko Dzhvarsheishvili, Fabrica and Tech Park took place in order to thoroughly prepare the students. Fun was had and the Georgian culture was enjoyed during excursions to the surrounding countryside.
These companies provided the students with experience during the project.
