A common challenge in rural societies is that young people move away from their local communities in order to find work and education. By making entrepreneurship more attractive for the youth they could make a living in their local communities. The RIBS project aims at developing young people’s knowledge about entrepreneurship and media literacy by engaging them in cross-border entrepreneurship courses, local and international workshops and exchange possibilities for students, teachers and coaches.
The project will organise both local and international business idea workshops to form cross-border teams based on similar business ideas. The teams will be coached in enhancing their business plan and in developing the necessary media and financial skills for the project. The teams will develop their business ideas mainly by using ICT tools but also during cross-border exchanges, under supervision of teachers and coaches.
During the project, approximately 20 joint student companies will be established. The networks of young participants created during their work with the joint student companies can become the starting point for new, creative and competitive cross-border companies in the future.

1) Business idea workshops are held locally, where the young participants will be able to call out ideas that they want to work with. All business ideas are compiled by the staff and presented by using media tools, and during international workshops.
2) Cross-border teams are formed on the basis of similar ideas that have been called out. The group decides how they want to enhance their business plan with media tools. The coach helps to find the necessary media and financial literacy skills for the project.
3) The teams will develop their business ideas mainly using ICT tools but also during cross-border exchanges, under supervision of teachers/leaders/coaches.
Through courses, workshops, working with the joint companies and through exchange between partners, all participants (teachers, coaches, students and young people) will get improved knowledge about entrepreneurship.
The main result of the project is that the young participants will get basic knowledge about entrepreneurship, and that they will have a positive attitude towards entrepreneurship in an international context
