The BEDI project aims to create a new concept
- "The Room" – a physical place where young potential entrepreneurs
can get help working on early stage ideas before they start a new company.
Examples of help can be: Creative idea
generation and concept development, Meeting, Team building, Prototyping,
Business modelling, Market analysis to name a few examples. The Room will be
open, free and professional.
There is a lot to think about before making
the decision to start a company – The Room can help more young persons to take
the step to start a company. With the help of the room the fundament for the
company will be better and the company more likely to succeed and scale.

Tbilisi open for business by the summer 2017. The setup of The Room will be discussed in workshop in Lviv, Ukraine 4 November 2016 in order to find
solutions for local challenges with invited key stakeholders from industry,
policy and academia. The workshops will focus on how create The Room with a
content that can: increase the innovation capacity through collaboration;
