My name is Kate. I am a 1st year student in Ventspils High school in Latvia and this is my Fundraiser.
Years ago it was "A big thing" for a young man or a woman to own a company, especially if he/she is at the age of 20-25, but as the time passes, the world changes and 'the system', by which we live, changes too. The modern High schools in my country support the new entrepreneurs and encourages them to start up a company on their own, starting with making a business plan, organizing the documentation, finding financial help and so on. These new entrepreneurs are qualified for work both in Latvia and abroad, which means, young and professional employees for companies all around the world.
We are organizing this competition to attract new students for studying Business Management, Economics, Marketing and Accounting.
The competition will take place in Ventspils High School in Latvia and it is organized for Middle school students - 10th to 12th graders from all around Latvia.
I am signing up for this crowd rising website to rise extra money to provide the catering for all 300 competitors, yet still knowing the existing possibility that more than 300 competitors will apply. My opinion of the possible number of competitors is based on the appliance of last year, when this competition was organized for the first time and gathered 280 students from all around Latvia. We are hoping to gather 500 students this year and even more on the fallowing years, as this competition will be a yearly tradition for our High School.
I hope You will see this project as important to our society as I do and help us to provide our 'soon-to-be' new managers, business owners and employees with an appropriate meal.
Best wishes from Latvia.
