Center for Entrepreneurship and innovation is an initiative of experts and innovators that aims to promote entrepreneurial and innovative skills among Albanian youth. The vision of CEI is to start a process of transforming Albania into the tech-hub of Europe. Taking in consideration the shortage of skills and the vast demand existing on such skills we hope to contribute in regulating these market forces. Albania has a brilliant and talented youth with huge potential, if directed and trained the right way could be a valuable economic and social resource not only for the country but also for the region. CEI will contribute with setting up incubators for young entrepreneurial minds and new comers into the labor force, setting up courses and training sessions for information technology skills, connecting people that share similar interests and projects hoping to give a boost to start up creation in the Albanian market.
