Discover – Identify your entrepreneurial skills and start-up!
“Europe’s economic growth and jobs depend on its ability to support the growth of enterprises. Entrepreneurship creates new companies, opens up new markets, and nurtures new skills.” (https://ec.europa.eu/growth/smes/promoting-entrepreneurship_en)
Without doubts, entrepreneurship plays an important role for the economic development and is besides a great chance for the founders – but nevertheless founding your own start-up also means risks. So what makes a person a successful entrepreneur and how can the risks be minimized? The Discover project tries to answer these questions and deals with entrepreneurial skills and competences.
An assessment dedicated to entrepreneurial skills and competences, based on the German tool ProfilPASS, will allow persons interested in starting-up to know more about their level of relevant competences. An Online Competence Trainer will help them in filling in possible gaps. Guidelines and training for counsellors will support professionals in working with this new tool and support potential start-ups in the best possible way.
