During the first weekend of February, the PINK Foundation was part of a very interesting event – a social entrepreneurship competition ”Innovation Station”. The event was hosted by the American University of Blagoevgrad, organized by the Better Community Club, and the participants – active students. Prior to the start of the competition, which took place during the weekend of February 7-9, several non-governmental organizations sent out cases involving problems they were facing. Over the weekend, it was the task of the participating teams to investigate the problem and come up with original solutions with the help of their mentors (NGO representatives). Solutions to the problems posed were cleverly presented to the jury in the final stage of the competition.
PINK is grateful for the invitation to take part in such an initiative and for the ideas that the participants presented for solving obstacles that all non-governmental organizations face. The weekend was filled with brainstorming, friendships, inspiration and many other positive emotions.
