Licėjus focuses on one of the most important competencies for entrepreneurship in the 21st century. Students get acquainted with these basics from the fifth grade. The concept of entrepreneurship is widely understood, but Eurdito licėjus is all about creativity. Students are encouraged to develop ideas that may initially seem impossible to implement. Students themselves say that the hardest part is coming up with an idea, and when you find it, all the challenges go away on their own.
Nuno Lage and Kristina Celiešiūtė, entrepreneurship teachers of the International Baccalaureate, contributed to the establishment and development of most of the companies. According to them, each year students are surprised by their ingenuity and goal pursuit. According to them, the hardest part is coming up with a business idea. And when you already have an object, you only need the desire and good mentors to develop entrepreneurial plans and sales strategies.
