Do you feel you’re not being effective with the work you do? You become tired too quickly? Would you like to develop your own effectiveness? And become more successful and productive in professional and personal life? Then we invite you to join our Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop which will take place from 11th to 16th February 2018 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
We invite young leaders who wish to contribute to their communities to join the workshop and learn more about youth entrepreneurship. Young leaders will be offered workshops to introduce them to various aspects of the topic with the special emphasis on how to move from theory to practice in the field of youth entrepreneurship. You will also learn how to realize your own potential as a young entrepreneur.
Development of youth entrepreneurship is an effective way to contribute to the economic development of the community! Young people – young leaders – are the key mechanism for such development. The Workshop will allow you to unlock your entrepreneurial potential as a young leader.
During the course each person will go through a series of assessments in order to understand what are the issues not allowing him/her to be effective at work or personal life. After those assessments the results will be analysed and each person will receive their individual recommendations on how they could become more effective!
If you feel you have the soul of an entrepreneur but do not know yet how to put this into practise – join us for the Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop in Amsterdam!

Participants of the event will be offered a great opportunity to experience unique accommodation – hotel on the boat! Yes, participants won’t be accommodated just in a regular hotel, they will be accommodated in the hotel…on the boat! In this way you will not just visit Amsterdam for a course but will also have a chance to enjoy one of the things that Amsterdam is famous for – its accommodation on the boats!
Participants will stay in shared rooms (single accommodation is also possible for the extra fee of 180 euro). Boat hotel also provides kitchen that can be used by participants as well. Deck of the boat can be used by participants as well.
Breakfast will be provided in the morning in the boat hotel.
Hotel on the boat is the chance to experience the true Amsterdam! Usually for the groups we rent the whole boat so there will be no other guests staying in the hotel during our stay! And that means the group can have the whole boat for the period of the program and fully enjoy the experience!
We hire different boats for our projects depending on the amount of participants. The location of the boat is varies as well. Right before the program when we will know for sure how many participants we have we will be able to determine which boat we are going to hire and will send the address and detailed description of how to reach the place to the participants. However, all the boats we usually hire are very similar to each other and fall under the description above.
Due to weather conditions sometimes we are unable to accommodate participants on the hotel on the boat – in this case the regular accommodation will be provided. If this will be the case – you will be informed about in in advance.
The fee for the course is 550 euro. The fee includes:
- Accommodation (in Amsterdam)
- The course (including all costs of the materials)
- Meals (breakfast, lunch and coffee-breaks)
The tickets to and from the Netherlands are not included in the price. The participants need to purchase their tickets additionally.
In order to apply for the program – please send an email to the following address – firstname.lastname@example.org

Please send a copy of the email to – email@example.com
We do not have any age or geographical limits for the applicants. Person of any age from any country is welcome to apply for the course.
We provide a visa invitation for the visa to the Netherlands. Please note – visa invitation is not a visa – with the invitation that we will send, you will still need to go to the closest Dutch Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to provide other documents – usually those documents include passport, passport size photo, filled application form, insurance, proof of means, proof of work/study and other documents. The list of the documents might slightly differ depending on the country where you apply for a visa. Please check the website of the closest Dutch Consulate to see what is the list of the documents you need to prepare.
In most of cases before applying for a visa you need to make an appointment at the Consulate. Some times you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance. We recommend you to contact the Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment.
The fee for the visa might differ depending on the country where you apply – you might have your visa free of charge or might need to pay for it 35 or 60 euro. Those are the fees in case you apply for a visa directly at the Consulate. If you apply via Visa Center of the Dutch Consulate, Visa Center, Travel agency or another organization – those organizations might charge extra fees for their services.
If you submit all the requested documents on time the chance for the rejection of a visa is very small. In our experience the visas are mostly rejected if an applicant provides false information to the Consulate. This could be the major reason for rejections. We kindly ask you to check the documents before the application and make sure you only provide the correct information to the Consulate and in that case you most probably will receive a visa without any difficulties.
And of course if you have any questions regarding the visa application procedure we would be happy to assist at any stage of your application!
