    The paper presents the scope of innovation and entrepreneurship development in terms of invention – innovation processes that young people receive in the educational process. We are processing the idea of Secondary Catering School of Ljubljana female attendants to whom an idea occurred while taking a walk through the streets of Ljubljana. Students were looking at a small group of blind and visually impaired people who were given a presentation on Ljubljana sights by a tourist guide. They quickly realized that something was missing in the presentation. With the help of their mentor they began their research and found that Ljubljana is otherwise a friendly place for people with disabilities, but the demonstrations would be much more efficient and friendly, if the blind and partially sighted people could also touch certain things, feel them and recognise them in such a way. With the prototype, developed by the students, and offered to the market, they successfully completed the phase of the entrepreneurial process.
