With the support of the European Union, the first entrepreneurship support and development centre has opened its doors in Tiraspol, providing young entrepreneurs with access to information, consultancy, and trainings.The EU provided €200,000 for establishing the Business HUB, through the ‘Confidence Building Measures’ programme, implemented by UNDP Moldova.
“We have been waiting for a long time for the launch of this Centre. Here we have a wonderful infrastructure for the development of entrepreneurs, where we can offer them consultancy and other services, to unleash their full potential,” said Zinaida Emilianova, Manager of the Business HUB.
Of 16 available workstations, 12 are already booked by the HUB’s residents, offering young entrepreneurs the best conditions to pursue the implementation of their business ideas.
“The Business Hub will help the creative and tech community to flourish. The co-working spaces will facilitate linkages between entrepreneurs, business support organisations, academia, and consumers,” said EU ambassador to Moldova Jānis Mažeiks, adding: “The well-functioning of this Centre will enhance cooperation, so as to increase confidence between stakeholders from both banks of the Nistru river.”
The launch of the Business HUB will contribute to the economic development of the region, by training young professionals in new skills and professions of the future. The EU ‘Confidence Building Measures’ programme, implemented by UNDP, contributes to increasing trust between residents of both banks of the Nistru river by involving them in joint projects.
