iBuild - Tools and skills for entrepreneurs

Training Course

28 August - 5 September 2023 | Hollókő, Hungary

iBuild give participants a chance to get to know and experience how to work with design thinking and business model canvas, in order to support their NGOs or create new and innovative business plans for their fresh enterprise.

This training is here for you to…

  • improve cooperation skills, tools, practices, and strategies of youth NGOs
  • make NGO visibility, dissemination, and PR activities more effective
  • increase the recognition of non-formal learning and youth work
  • enhance cross-sectoral sharing of expertise, cooperation, and networking among young entrepreneurs and/or youth leaders
  • stimulate the creation of youth projects and innovative enterprises

Participants’ profile:

  • Youth workers, youth leaders, members and volunteers of youth associations, educators
  • at least 18 years old and able to communicate easily in English
  • are able to participate fully at the programme from the beginning 'till the end.


We facilitate learning by non-formal methods: self-directed work towards learning goals; self-assessment; skills development workshops, individual-, couple- and group work; simulations, exercises for creative expression, drama, dance and outdoor, debriefings, and plenary discussions. We share and analyze cases of partners’ everyday challenges, and learn to work with cooperation tools such as design thinking, and business model canvas.

Design thinking is a problem-solving approach that emphasizes understanding the user's perspective and redefining problems to identify solutions.

The Business Model Canvas is a tool for describing, designing, challenging, and pivoting your business model. It is especially useful for entrepreneurs.

Teaching Design Thinking and the Business Model Canvas (BMC) to NGO workers can be extremely beneficial, enhancing their ability to create impactful, sustainable, and user-focused solutions. Here are a few of the reasons why:

  • Understanding User Needs
  • Innovation
  • Efficient Resource Use
  • Stakeholder Communication
  • Strategic Planning
  • Capacity Building
  • Scalability and Adaptability
