Practice Makes Perfect!
Start date: Aug 1, 2015,
End date: Feb 29, 2016
Nowadays, the entrepreneurial education of young people is highly necessary especially for new venture creation. The development of new small businesses, which most of the times are accompanied by an entrepreneurial spirit, does not only empower the economic situation through the creation of new jobs, but it also provides a pathway for inclusion into the labour market those, who are on a risk of unemployment. Moreover, in the current economic environment, entrepreneurship constitutes the best opportunity for many unemployed citizens to recover by starting a business, thus being self-employed.
Entrepreneurial experiences – such as making mistakes, trying a concept, developing ideas, actually building, managing, and growing organizations, raising real funds, failing, trying again, building intellectual capital and managing it, and translating intellectual value into economic and social value – should be a part of education of young people and presented as considerable option for life.
