From Elmaddin Mehtiev's words the Forum of the young entrepreneurs of OIC is very important for the adolescence generation, because first of all it strengths the intergovernmental relations. Second of all, it is a good start for anyone, who is yet a young entrepreneur and third of all, gives an opportunity for the members of the Forum to find an investor in a very short time.

After the Opening Ceremony and Network Sessions, members have had another an educational session "Customer Development" from Alexander Eremeev. The guests were given the opportunity of to learn about how to open your own business. From his own words: "When people develop their own business, they think more about the product that they want to create instead of thinking what the consumers may want. The educational session "Customer Development" teaches young entrepreneurs and verifies that it covered both the customers and owners interests".
