The approach worked out by Yan Guerrovich, the creator of Uni2Biz, is to connect students to business reality starting from the university bench. All students are given exactly the same chances at start. The student starts from fulfilling a small test task. There is no success or failure; the test is aimed to evaluate his knowledge and skills at the start. Then the student is integrated smoothly into business processes. The experienced team leads the students and lets them try things and push him in the direction where the students are good and which they like.

The project is run like a business. When participants give efficient efforts they are rewarded correspondingly.

The opinions and strategies of co-operation between educational establishments and businesses were described by the representatives of European educational establishments such as:
