Together with a partner, Sopho Nozadze just opened her own
bar in Gori which allows locals and tourists to explore unforgettably; amongst
others, the menu covers burgers, sandwiches, salads, special sauces and
“The team of the Entrepreneurship School is still actively
supporting me. Already the business plan for ‘Posh Bar’ has been developed in
close consultation with them. The most important support for me as a start-up entrepreneur was having a mentor. In my case, it was Saba Ichkitidze, an
experienced chef, who helped us to create the menu and by sharing recipes,”
explained the young business owner.
The mentoring program for young entrepreneurs is part of the
EU-funded project “EU4Youth – Enhancing Youth Education, Employment and
Participation in Conflict-affected Areas in Georgia and Ukraine.” The
initiative aims to widen education, employment, and entrepreneurial
opportunities for internally displaced persons and conflict-affected youth and
encourages their significant participation in the community. In Georgia, it is
implemented by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and the Education Development
and Employment Center (EDEC).
