There were 40 participants in each mobility activity, 4 representatives for each organization from the following countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Latvia, Italy, Kosovo* UN resolution, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.

The partner organizations shared the struggle of youth entrepreneurship problems in their respective communities. Through the implementation of the project, the partner organizations raised their capacities in the field and improve their work in the area by applying the new lessons learned. They also raised awareness about entrepreneurship and efficiently empower young people in becoming entrepreneurs.

Furthermore, work in the entrepreneurship sector has been strongly promoted. Participant organizations, gaining a new insight of the entrepreneurial field and having as common interest working on entrepreneurship development, were motivated to develop other projects in their countries. The participant organizations had the possibility to keep in touch with the experts of the implemented activities even after the project was finished. In this way, the experts advised the participants on their new project ideas.
