International Stock of Entrepreneurial Ideas sends a message of awakening the entrepreneurial skills of students and young people in Montenegro. The International Stock brought together representatives of 30 of the most successful Montenegrin companies that, as a “demand” sides, bought up the ideas of young entrepreneurs. The International Stock is an event where high school and university students present their business ideas (“offer ideas”). This year 92 ideas were reported. The ideas are processed in accordance with the methodology established by UDG. The organizer has performed a preliminary selection of the applicants’ ideas and chose top 10. Accepted business ideas were presented at business ideas ranking, and according to the Rules and regulations of the business ideas ranking on the International Stock, they had the opportunity to be presented to “demand” sides. The ideas that did not qualify among top 10 are presented in the special edition of “The Book of Ideas” and presented companies had the opportunity to make a bid for these ideas, too. All these ideas represent “Offers” at the stock market. The presentation of the IPA Adriatic project, NEXT Collaborative platform to support research and technology transfer was held within The IV International Stock. The presentation introduced the goal of the project, the establishment of an international web platform that will enable communication between business and the research sector in the Mediterranean region, as well as future activities. Bearing in mind that the participants of the stock, “demand” sides, are Montenegro’s largest companies (which employ 11 000 people in Montenegro), and that on the “offers” side were faculties from the region, the sole aim of the project is practically displayed here. All participants received a booklet of project.
