TIRANA, August 28
A new initiative in support to entrepreneurship skills and to the technology sector is implemented in Albania by the British Embassy and the British Council. UK-Albania Tech Hub is a new program to support the partnership between Albania and the UK in the technology sector. This program aims at boosting tech start-ups in Albania and creating opportunities to do business with the UK.
Albanian youth is very dynamic, well-educated and English-speaking. Innovation nowadays is the number one precondition for economies and countries to prosper and the project supports both the UK and Albanian ambitions in this direction. These are the reasons why this program that has been established and proven elsewhere is now being implemented in Albania.
UK-Albania Tech Hub includes a three steps approach to supporting tech start-ups;
1. A workshop series on international and UK business in the tech sector,
2. An exchange program to explore business opportunities in the UK tech sector
3. A program to boost the performance of selected start-ups
What’s the process?
The opportunity to participate in the program is now open to all technology start- ups that are already established in the Albanian market. The shortlisted start-ups (based on a set of criteria) will embark on a training program with some of the best experts from the UK and Albania, followed by an exchange program in the UK.
Are you interested to join the program? Do you want to be one of the first Albanian technology start-ups to tap into the UK market? If so, then fill in the application form and send it by email at [email protected] by 25th of September 2017.
