On April 15, the Development for People and Nature Association (DPNA) and CIPE released a new entrepreneurship and civic education curriculum for high school students. The goal of the Entrance to Enterprise (E2E) course is to empower Lebanese youth to realize their economic potential and proactively engage in their communities. E2E emphasizes the values and traits of entrepreneurs, leadership skills, the basics of free market economics, the legal steps necessary to start a business in Lebanon, and the components of a winning business plan. The E2E launch attracted representatives from the private, public, civil society, and academic sectors, including the Minister of Education and Higher Education and Chamber of Commerce Business Innovation Center (BIC) directors.

In 2009, recognizing the need to identify and cultivate young leaders and entrepreneurs in the North Caucasus, the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and the Vladikavkaz Institute of Management (VIM) developed a new certificate program called the “New Economic Generation” in North Ossetia. The curriculum for the program was designed by CIPE, VIM, and academics from other institutions, in part based on other CIPE youth training programs. Currently being run in Vladikavkaz on a pilot basis, taught by VIM and other professors, the six-module program includes nearly 100 hours of education on the following topics: Strategic Business Planning and Launching a New Enterprise; Financial and Economic Literacy; Entrepreneurship in a Democratic Society; Leadership and Professional Growth; Property Rights and Free Market Institutions; and Democratic Institutions and the Rule of Law.
