"The project aims to develop entrepreneurship among indigenous people in the Barents region. The participating entrepreneurs should have businesses or business ideas closely related to indigenous culture and traditions. Possible businesses could be reindeer herding, handicraft, fishing and hunting, but also new businesses as tourism, modern design, photography etc. By strengthening entrepreneurship among the indigenous peoples, they will become more involved in the development of the region and the indigenous communities will be strengthened. Concrete goals of the project are to gather 80 indigenous entrepreneurs to take part of a business development program, resulting in positive development in 30 related businesses, and having 10 cross-border cooperation activities established." /.../
