Project Title:  DIGIBOOST: Empowering Rural Communities with Digital Entrepreneurship to Boost Local Economies

Programme/financer: KA220-ADU – Cooperation partnerships in adult education (THE CENTRE FOR EUROPEAN UNION EDUCATION AND YOUTH PROGRAMMES (TURKISH NATIONAL AGENCY)

 Description:

 Digital transformation, as an ongoing process, is taking place all over the world and involves companies transforming their own processes and operations using digital technologies and tools. Digital entrepreneurship is an important part of digital transformation. It is the process of creating new companies or innovative development of existing ones using digital technology. Digital marketing, e-commerce, mobile app development and other topics are crucial in this process. Digital entrepreneurs build a portfolio of clients worldwide through the Internet and technology and expand their business. In addition, digital transformation enables traditional companies to integrate into the digital world. Thus, companies can easily reach a wider audience and increase their customer portfolio.

Rural communities must also be included in this digital transformation. These communities cannot take advantage of all the possibilities of digital transformation for various reasons, such as inadequate education, lack of awareness, insufficient technological infrastructure or difficulties in accessing financial resources.

The goals and concrete results we want to achieve in the project are, in particular:

  • Developing Entrepreneurial Skills: Our goal is to teach digital entrepreneurial skills among disadvantaged individuals in rural areas, including business start-up, management and growth skills.
  • Increasing the use of technology: our goal is to increase the use of technology by project participants, which includes the Internet, digital tools, social media marketing and other digital skills.
  • Development of innovative business ideas: Our goal is to encourage project participants to develop an innovative business idea that can be tested and implemented with mentoring and support.
  • Creation of employment opportunities: Our goal is to increase the employability of disadvantaged individuals in rural areas by establishing small businesses and thereby creating employment opportunities in the region.
  • Community Strengthening: Our goal is to strengthen communities of disadvantaged individuals in rural areas by providing mentoring, education and other resources to help them come together, support each other and social cohesion.
