ALBANIA / Albania
Yunus Social Business Balkans
For the past quarter century the Albanian economy has been transitioning from communism to an open market. Entrepreneurship can address some of the resulting issues hindering economic growth. In an effort to promote entrepreneurial activity, Yunus Social Business Balkans (YSBB) initiated this project of mapping the ecosystem which primarily consists of entrepreneurs, organizations, and the interactions between them. To explore the ecosystem in Albania we interviewed 14 entrepreneurs and 10 supporting organizations about their experiences and viewpoints. We provided YSBB with insights and recommendations for the ecosystem, and we applied the information we obtained to create a website that will assist entrepreneurs to navigate the environment and find resources to build their businesses.
