Secrets of Success 2022 – 2023 33 Under 33 List: meet the first 4

Tags: , , , , , , ,

This year, in the spirit of the European Year of Youth and under the auspices of European SME Week, we have launched the new Secrets of Success 2022–2023: 33 Under 33 List. It aims to identify and promote 33 promising young entrepreneurs from across the 33 EU & COSME countries. In this post, we introduce you to four entrepreneurs from the list, who have been selected to participate in a Secrets of Success session at this year´s SME Assembly, which will take place on 28-30 November 2022 in Prague.

The 33 Under 33 List will shine a spotlight on a selection of successful young entrepreneurs, documenting their stories in an effort to inspire others to consider entrepreneurship as a career path.

A highlight of the initiative will be a Stories of Success: 33 Under 33 panel discussion at this year´s SME Assembly in Prague. The four selected entrepreneurs will participate in the session, which will take place at 12.00-13.00 on 29 November and can be followed online.

The purpose of the session is to showcase some of Europe’s best and brightest entrepreneurs, to encourage dreams of entrepreneurship and to celebrate the diversity of Europe’s businesses and businesspeople. The session brings together some creative minds from a new generation of young European entrepreneurs who are beacons of hope against a backdrop of uncertainty and crisis. At the session, we hope to achieve a better understanding of their motivations, the obstacles and opportunities they face, and their attitude towards success and the future of enterprise.


And so, in alphabetical order, the four entrepreneurs that will participate in the SME Assembly session and the first official announcements of this year´s 33 under 33 List are:

SME Assembly 2022 — A Little Guide to Prague

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

The SME Assembly 2022 is nearly here! In anticipation of this year’s event, we’ve listed some of the best things to see, buy, eat, and (of course) drink in the beautiful Czech capital.

What to See

Take a walk along the Royal Route to check out some of the city’s most dazzling sights. Although less than three kilometres in length, the Royal Route is home to such attractions as:

  • The Municipal House — A classic example of Art Nouveau architecture built in the early twentieth century. There’s so Mucha to see here (pardon the pun).
  • The Old Town Square — It might be old and square, but the people you’ll find here are anything but
  • The Astronomical Clock — We bet your watch doesn’t also show you the positions of the Sun, phases of the Moon, astronomical cycles, and Christian holidays (unless there’s a new Apple Watch we don’t know about).
  • Charles Bridge — Visit the oldest surviving bridge built over the Vlatva River for some very pretty views of the capital.
  • The St Vitus Cathedral — Prague’s largest church, which also houses an impressive array of holy relics.
  • Prague Castle — Prague’s most visited monument and the seat of the President of the Czech Republic (and here we are sitting on office chairs …)

What to Buy

Leave some room in your luggage, because there are loads of goodies you’ll want to bring back!

  • Bohemian crystal — There’s crystal, and there’s Bohemian crystal. As Sade would say, this. Is. No. Ordinary glass.
  • Bohemian garnets — A hallmark of royal Bohemian jewellery for centuries, these red stones are truly dazzling. Just make sure to request a certificate of authenticity before buying any, as there are quite a few fakes out there.
  • Oplatky — Wafers that melt in your mouth (but hopefully not in your suitcase)
  • Beer cosmetics — Guerlain, Schmerlain. Dose up on some vitamin B with all-natural cosmetics (as well as shampoos and shower gels) made of beer. Your skin will thank you.

What to Eat

You’ll also want to leave some room in your stomach. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

  • Chlebíček — Scrumptious open-faced sandwiches you can find just about anywhere
  • Koláče — Pastries, traditionally filled with poppy seeds or jam
  • Buchty — These sweet yeast dough buns are straight out of a Bohemian fairytale. Literally. Legend has it that the Bohemian dragon slayers of old would snack on these. If buchty was good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.
  • Svíčková — Whipped cream, cranberry sauce, and beef. It sounds like a recipe for disaster, but tastes heavenly. As far as Czech dishes go, it doesn’t get more iconic than this.

What to Drink

  • Beer — Obviously. A trip to Prague wouldn’t be a trip to Prague without the golden pilsners (named after the city of Pilsen) the Czech Republic is famous for. By all means, indulge in pints of Pilsner Urquell and other local brews; just do so responsibly. Otherwise, you might find yourself constantly asking your friends, like Steve Urkel (no relation), ’Did I do that!?’
  • Kofola — We’d love to buy the world a … Kofola! One sip is all it takes to see why this Communist-era take on Coca-Cola is still around.
  • Moravian wine — Pair a glass with some svíčková and watch the magic happen
  • Becherovka — The Czech are so secretive about the recipe of this herbal aperitif that only two people in the world know it at any given time. Have a sip and you’ll see why.

The SME Assembly 2022 kicks off in Prague on November 28. Although the Assembly is fully booked, you can livestream and participate in the event online via the SME Assembly app. Register here.

EEPA 2022 shortlist – Responsible and Inclusive Entrepreneurship

Tags: , , , , , ,

At the beginning of October, we announced the shortlist of finalists for s year’s European Enterprise Promotion Awards (EEPA). Since then, we have taken a closer look at the shortlisted projects in each category. You have already had the opportunity to learn more about the projects in Category 1, Category 2, Category 3, Category 4 and Category 5; this time, we will take a look at the sixth and final category – Category 6: Responsible and Inclusive Entrepreneurship.

EEPA Category 6 aims to reward projects that create innovative approaches to promote socially and environmentally responsible business. The shortlisted projects in this category come from Ireland, France and Spain. We present them in alphabetical order below. Read on to find out more.

co:worx project – Ireland

Co:worx is an ambitious project that has been implemented by a group of local community volunteers with the support of local and national co-funders. The project involves the repurposing and transformation of a derelict bank building in a rural town, transforming it into a digital hub. Co:worx is an excellent example of voluntary groups collaborating with their local authority and state agencies to develop ambitious plans for their town. The project is creating economic opportunities and providing remote working infrastructure, helping to sustain the town into the future. Co:worx’ values align towards a common goal – the sustainable economic development and participation of rural areas in Europe’s future, while building confidence and creating innovation.

French Tech Tremplin – France 

The French Tech Mission is a unique movement bringing together startups, investors, policymakers and community builders. Its mission is to make France one of the greatest places in the world to launch and grow global companies that make sense for our future. Through the French Tech Tremplin programme, the French Tech Mission enables people removed from entrepreneurship to create a start-up, anywhere in France. The programme aims to identify French-speaking aspiring entrepreneurs from less privileged backgrounds and to welcome them into the French Tech ecosystem. It improves their chances of success through funding, training and mentorship. The initiative is designed to level the playing field by mimicking certain advantages these entrepreneurs would have had easier access to, had they come from more privileged backgrounds.

Innovatia 8.3 – Spain 

Innovatia 8.3 is the result of a collaboration between the University of Santiago de Compostela and the National Women’s Institute of Spain. The initiative has two key objectives – to promote the entrepreneurial spirit of women in the scientific-technological field and to create an intervention model that integrates the gender perspective in knowledge transfer processes and in the process of creating technology-based companies. Innovatia 8.3 is committed to promoting entrepreneurship and the business capacity of women in the scientific and technological sectors in all Spanish universities in order to eliminate the existing gender gap in these areas.

What’s next?

The winners of this year’s competition will be announced at the EEPA Awards Ceremony, to be held at the annual SME Assembly in Prague, Czech Republic, and online from 28 – 30th November. Places are limited at the forum, but you can download the Promoting Enterprise app, which will allow you to follow the event online and revolutionize your SME Week and SME Assembly experience with its many novel features.

We will be taking a closer look at the European shortlist in the other categories on the prompting Enterprise portal soon, so make sure to come back to the News Portal every week to learn more about each of the shortlisted projects that will be competing in the EEPA 2022 finals.
