Presentation of the exchange:
The two entrepreneurs decided to participate in the program to share their ideas on the Italian agribusiness, get practical feedbacks from the food and beverage sector and exchange views on organic food products trade. They worked on exporting wine and other products to different retailers, and learned about chains of production, and sales and distribution channels.
Profile of the entrepreneurs:
NE- Kairi Kuusemaa from Turkey
HE-Giuseppe Nania from Italy
Quote of the NE
This experience is very positive, because young new entrepreneurs can get a great opportunity to learn from HEs about many practical things that are not possible to learn from school or from daily job as an employee, such as farming techniques and agribusiness in my project case. I strongly recommend the experience to others, as it is the start of a long-term business partnership, beneficial for both NEs and HEs.
Quote of the HE
There are many benefits gained for the NE and for the HE. The HE hosts a person from a different country and with a different cultural background, which helps him expand his business abroad. Me and the NE created a long-term business partnership in the trade business of organic food and wine and she improved her management and organisation skills, which are important for a succesful entrepreneur.
