Entrepreneurship competition POPRI

What is competition POPRI?

POPRI (the acronym means ‘The Company for the Future‘) is a Slovenian entrepreneurial competition for young people with bold ideas and entrepreneurial spirit. The annual competition has been taking place since 2005, providing young people with an excellent opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial mind-set, creativity, and innovation, thus allowing them to acquire new skills and experience.

  • Entrepreneurship Experiment – extra-curricular activities or workshops for elementary school pupils,
  • Start-Up Days for secondary school students and
  • Start-Up Weekends for university students, graduates, and others.

Who can compete?

The competition is divided into three age groups:

  • university students, graduates and young people under 29,
  • secondary school,
  • primary school (ages 12-15).
