Description of Activity

The Project Empreende Jovem is an initiative of the Youth Foundation in partnership with the City Hall of Oporto and proposes to develop a set of ongoing initiatives aimed at promoting an entrepreneurial culture among young people, also promoting and affirming the city of Oporto as a Young Entrepreneurial City of reference.



The Foundation has developed a set of strategic initiatives, at the level of Employment and Entrepreneurship, which attest to its experience and know-how in promoting projects with young people and dedicated to social issues related to social exclusion and youth unemployment, and it is within this context that the Empreende Jovem Project is implemented, in close coordination with the Porto City Hall.

It should be noted that, in the 2019 edition, 30 Entrepreneurship Roadmaps were held, in which 784 secondary and vocational school students from 15 schools in the municipality of Porto participated.

The new edition aims to overcome these indicators, for such, and in such an uncertain moment regarding the functioning of schools, all training can be carried out entirely in digital format.
