I applied for an opening spot at the European Young Enterprise Alumni yearly Leadership conference in Milan, and got the seat for this life changing event. The European Young Enterprise Alumni network is large network of former Young Enterprise participants from all over Europe.
Nice Inside was hosted by the Italians in the Alumni Network and was located in the beautiful surroundings of Milan. Nice Inside was a leadership conference with a lot of experimental seminars with Italian professors in different subject. The purpose of the conference was to deliver a final cut promotion video for the European Young Enterprise Alumni network. I volunteered for being a part of the management group that were to manage three different groups and make them work together on the final product. The mission succeeded.
The event taught me a lot of project management, and introduced me to the subject of “NETWORKING”.
I attend European Manager for a day 2008, which was the first time I got acquainted with YEAD (Young Enterprise Alumni Denmark). I was recommended by my teacher to apply, and I got accepted for the popular event. It was a 3 day event, where the middle day was a visit to a manager in some Danish company. I was following a sales manager for MultiData, and I got an exclusive inside view in a large Danish company. The experience provided me with organizational knowledge, and a feeling of the real life in a large corporation. Video from the Event:
During my sophomore year in High-School 2007-2008, I participated in the international Junior Achievement/Young Enterprise Company Program. The concept of Company Program is to start a Young Enterprise company, and experience the challenges of being an entrepreneur with a real company. Through the program I came all the way around, from creating an idea, test it, brand it, and present it. Further to create budgets and manage a small business economy with income statements and balances.
The company were through the program competing against other companies about being the one company to represent Denmark at the European Young Enterprise trade fair. Personally my own company made it to the national trade fair, where we competed with the greatest Young Enterprise companies from all over Denmark.
