About ABLE Weekend Activator
ABLE Weekend Activator is an annual workshop event that helps young people generate business ideas and develop them into working business plans. During the event, participants are divided into five teams working together to produce innovative and exciting business ideas. Participants are provided advice, recommendations and resources from mentors that help them tailor their business plans according to the stated objectives. Each team works with an assigned mentor, who guides participants every step of the way. On the first day of the workshop, participants meet their mentors who help them develop a working strategy for their business idea. On the second and final day, participants model and finish the final version of their business project. During that stage, the organizers provide participants with a lesson on effective public speaking, which could help them with the final stage of the workshop – the presentations of the completed business projects. The event ends when the participants present their hard work, and the jury gives their feedback.
ABLE Weekend Activator is a great way for young entrepreneurs to work on their professional ideas and build confidence for their future careers.
More about A Data Pro initiatives
A Data Pro believes that education and practice together allow the next generation to reach their full potential. For this reason, our company is always proud to support events that promote education to young professionals who want to develop their skills and reach new career goals. One of the programs A Data Pro proudly supports is offered by Telerik Academy. At the academy, students from 1st to 12th grade can receive education in digital sciences – a great initiative that helps students find their passion for programming and IT from an early age. So far, it has trained more than 14 000 students in more than 130 schools across Bulgaria. Telerik Academy also provides opportunities for young people and adults.
Higher education is one of the key factors when starting a job. However, we at A Data Pro know that not all students have enough opportunities to pursue higher education at universities due to various factors such as financial limitations or lack of time. Higher education can improve recruitment chances and advances career opportunities. That is why A Data Pro and the Association for Innovation, Business Excellence, Services and Technology (AIBEST) grant two full scholarships for a Master’s degree in Outsourcing projects and companies, a joint program with Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski. The company provides full scholarships at the University of Veliko Tarnovo as well. Besides granting scholarships for the program, A Data Pro also offers paid internships at the company to successful students.
By providing opportunities for further education, A Data Pro hopes to support pro-active individuals and offer them opportunities to reach their academic and career goals.
