The goal of the third outcome is to work on demand side and make businesses and social enterprises in targeted economic sectors increase their revenues, investment and create new jobs.
This will be achieved by investing in selected firms with high growth potential but also through increasing the number of new business services targeting growth oriented businesses and markets. Through these interventions project will work on promoting the competitiveness of businesses that have a high need for vocationally trained workers.
The project works with business service providers, business membership organizations, industrial associations and companies from selected sub-sectors such as manufacturers of plastics, metals, wood and textile as well as ICT and BPO firms.
Additionally, EYE focuses on the development of sustainable social enterprises. The project works on understanding the social entrepreneurship scheme in Kosovo and building long-term tools that support and accelerate enterprises into a path of sustainability and impact in areas including capacity-building, legal framework, and awareness raising.

EYE addresses the problem under two outputs:
