Despite the difficult situation in education due to the coronavirus, as many as 342 young people applied for it. Competitors developed their ideas with the support of 85 mentors in 66 educational institutions. From the received proposals, the 4 regional commissions selected the best from each category, who qualified for the regional pre-selections and had presented their products orally in the form of a 5-minute pitch - a short and inspiring startup presentation to the Entrepreneurship Commission. Depending on the location of the applicants, the assessment of entrepreneurial ideas was taken over by the regional partners of the competition: -Primorski tehnološki park -Razvojni center Novo mesto -Tehnološki park Ljubljana -SAŠA inkubator In the pre-selections, the first three best-ranked teams from each category and from each region qualified for the national competition, which will be organised at 5 April 2022.
