”Do not give me fish, but teach me how to catch fish”. This old saying may explain simply the ”School of Startups”; that was held by The Shortcut Organization a week ago. The organization sponsored such a vital event to asylum seekers, refugees, students, and youths who can speak English and would like to have a key of start point in different specializations and skills that help them to build their own business in near future.

This event had been preceded by another one that happened about one and half month ago. ”Business Ideation Weekend” is its name and the main purpose was to evaluate some business ideas that were proposed by the attendants and to work on their ideas, which in future could form real businesses.

More than 50 immigrants participated in that event. It contained workshops and some lectures for various skills like: entrepreneurship, people, technology, and design skills. Everyone chose his hobbies or profession to attend the lecture. The lectures were given by people who have good experience in the practical life.
I hope in near future that there will be more workshops like this to help immigrants to invest their time, push them to work and reach them to integrity. Thanks to The Shortcut and Start up Refugees for giving us this opportunity and hope they will get fruitful results from such nice work.
