With the support of the European Union, the first entrepreneurship support and development centre opened its doors in Tiraspol for young entrepreneurs, who benefit from access to information, consultancy, and trainings. The European Union provided 200,000 EUR for establishing the Business Hub, through the programme „Confidence Building Measures”, implemented by UNDP Moldova.
“We have been waiting for a long time the launch of this Centre. Here we have a wonderful infrastructure for the development of entrepreneurs, where we can offer them consultancy and other services, to unleash their full potential,”
notes Zinaida Emilianova, Manager of the Business Hub.
Of 16 available workstations, 12 are already booked by the Hub’s residents, and thus the young entrepreneurs have optimal conditions to pursue the implementation of their business ideas.
“We believe that business ideas, startups, and innovative entrepreneurial spirit are the key drivers which will develop and expand at the Business Hub opened in Tiraspol. The Business Hub will help the creative and tech community to flourish. The co-working spaces will facilitate linkages between entrepreneurs, business support organisations, academia, and consumers. The well-functioning of this Centre will enhance cooperation, so as confidence between stakeholders from both banks of the Nistru river,”
declared Jānis Mažeiks, Ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova
The newly created Business Hub in Tiraspol has not only offices and workspaces for residents, but also a conference room and other infrastructure elements necessary for young entrepreneurs.
The launch of the Business Hub will contribute to the economic development of the region, by training young professionals in new skills and professions of the future. The EU programme “Confidence Building Measures”, implemented by UNDP, contributes to increasing trust between the inhabitants of both banks of the Nistru river by involving them in joint projects.
