Job Opportunities: YuBiz will offer young people access to job opportunities deriving from their community and beyond through a smart tool that will match company vacancies with youth seeking employment.

 

Replication: YuBiz will be based on open technology tools and modular architecture which will enable its effortless replication in any other country or region.

 

Yubiz is a non profit initiative backed-up by a consortium of organizations and companies thatwill support the development and dissemination of the platform.  Our scope and vision has attracted interest from numerous companies and organizations willing to offer support, including a key telecommunication company which has committed to offer free services and financial help for the dissemination and marketing of the platform.

Just a question. The mentoring will only be provided through the platform or through direct meetings also? Thanks

Mentoring will be provided initially through the platform. We estimate that within 6 months from the lunch of Yubiz we will be able to offer face to face direct mentoring.

I like the idea very much and it seems well elaborated. Please pay special attention to facilitate the communication between young entrepreneurs and mentors through the platform in an easy way as much as possible. Good luck to your idea!

Antoni, thanks for the comment. The quick, robust and efficient communication between users and mentors is a fundamental target of Yubiz. Towards achieving this target we will incorporate specialized communication tools able to establish the interaction between users and mentors and at the same time, dynamically enrich Yubiz's knowledge base with the information generated from the communication instances, so all the users will eventually have access to it.
