On Monday, the Summer Economics Institute (SEI) was formally launched, through which AmCham Slovenia, in cooperation with the US Embassy in Slovenia, has been connecting study and business routes for the eighth consecutive years.

"Summer Economics Institute is a different approach to entrepreneurship, getting to know business first hand, through presentations and internships. You will gain a valuable perspective on how to start, grow, and maintain a healthy business. A successful business is more than a financial plan, at the heart of every thriving company is its most valuable asset, that is you, the people. During studying and learning from one another you will leave with knowledge, take advantage of it in your way," said Susan Falatko, Chargé d'affaires, US Embassy in Slovenia.

"Take advantage of the network that you will build, learn a lot and be bold, entrepreneurs need to stand out of the box," the message of the CEO of AmCham Slovenia, Ajša Vodnik, MSc.
