An Entrepreneurs’ Toolbox


The Oren platform approaches the entrepreneurs establishing a multi-stakeholder interaction, as a valuable strategy to enhance the modern rural economy opportunities.
We work to strengthen and improve the rural system, building and transferring a dynamic capability, which can help rural players to trig experience and interaction for sustainability, increasing the business skills of rural entrepreneurs, by promoting continued education and training in advanced aspects of business management.
