As part of their new project Challenges for young people, the public agency SPIRIT Slovenia has published eight challenges of five companies that wish to introduce new solutions into their business, developed by young people using the Running Lean methodology. The first companies that joined the project – GoOpti, Kompas MTS, Montessori Institute, Aviat and Viris – thus have an opportunity to get fresh innovative ideas. On the other hand, young people have the opportunity to acquire new skills for personal and professional development as well as the possibility of meeting potential future employers.
