IST has started a cooperation with the organization Ung Företagsamhet (UF), a part of the global organization Junior Achievement. UF is a non-profit organization, with the goal to teach students about enterprise and entrepreneurship and inspire to continuous learning and development among students. IST and UF already have many points of contacts and the cooperation aims to bring value in both directions.

Ung Företagsamhet (UF) is a Swedish organization, part of the global organization Junior Achievement, with the aim to give students the opportunity to develop their creativity and their skills within enterprise and entrepreneurship. They do so by offering teaching material, teacher guides, education, assessment support, scholarship opportunities, exchange with other countries and inspiration for teachers, students and managers.

"I am so proud over the cooperation with our new gold partner IST. There are so many points of contact between us and we share the same values, which is important for us at Ung Företagsamhet Kronoberg. Together with IST, we will develop schools and take them into the future. The story of IST as a company with Björn Sundeby's fantastic entrepreneurship is fundamentally inspiring for us, our students and our teachers. This will be really good!" says Sara Almkvist, Regional Manager at Ung Företagsamhet Kronoberg.

In this cooperation, IST will contribute through encouraging students to learn more about enterprise and entrepreneurship, and to inspire future learning and personal development.

“Our vision is that everyone is entitled to Learn More. That’s why we are thrilled for the opportunity to join forces with Ung Företagsamhet Kronoberg, whose model of giving students a chance to learn about entrepreneurship is widely known to be very successful and educative. Going forward, creativity and the ability to learn and re-learn will be even more vital than today, and if our engagement can help create opportunities for developing the next Bill Gates, Ariana Huffington or Björn Sundeby, then that’s a win-win situation where everyone Learns More,“ says David Hantoft, Head of HR at IST.
