  3. Tool to foster financing methods;
  4. Tool for the improvement of communication skills;

An overall introduction to the Entribu system has been held to demonstrate the usage of the Toolkit, as well as prior to the event a survey was sent out to the potential participants about the most useful topics that can be used for supporting local cultural operators in generating high-quality projects – another aspect was to choose those topics they are lacking knowledge in.

In order to be able to improve the participants’ knowledge in these specific topics, three experts have been invited who held very intense workshop on developing these skills:

Based on the feedbacks, the training was useful for all the participants: although most of them had previous experience in all the topics discussed in the frame of the event, there have been a lot of information that have not been heard so far while these can be definitely useful to support businesses and business ideas, as well as the general thinking about websites and presence on social media has been completely changed.
