Business Gate activities are endorsed by OKD foundation.
Business Gate Solutions – The OKD Foundation supports business from all angles.
The OKD Foundation and the city of Karvina have joined together to promote entrepreneurship, as well as much-needed business practice for young people through Business Gate. Currently, three high-school teams from Karvina can sign up for and compete for the best marketing solutions for a particular company. The competition for high schools “Business Gate Solutions” gives a chance for best students to represent their school in a prestigious battle of creative brains in Karvina. Teams will compete in a marketing campaign competition for a particular business. They will not be alone in it! During the implementation of the project, they will be able to attend all workshops at the Business Gate for free, and they will also meet with the consultants directly at the school. With the help of the OKD Foundation, we can send these experienced practitioners directly to schools so student’s teams do not have to regularly commute to the business center. Operational team leadership will be attended by experienced university students who have already tried this role within the Business Gate Academy program.
A team of high school and university students worked through holidays on companies assignments whose stories are described below. During this time students learned how to solve complex corporate problems and get the entrepreneurial spirit from contracting authorities and consultants they will come into contact with.
