Extensive presentations from experts – business executives and partners of the ACT Entrepreneurship Hub – regarding human resources management, financial tools, costing-budgeting, marketing strategy and networking, gave the opportunity to the large number of participants to obtain a good perspective of successful business practices.

This will be achieved through the Innovation Pole, prepared by the Municipality, focusing on innovative ideas that will be implemented by the citizens.
