Women entrepreneurs: Acquiring new competences is the key to start successuful business
In the last years the European Union has focused on the promotion and the development of women entrepreneurship, underlining the importance of business women’s contribution to the whole economic system.
Nevertheless, starting a business is not easy, especially if you have to deal with your insecurities, skepticism of the social contest you live in, and many other obstacles.
From this perspective the European project, Women Entrepreneurs: Inspire Us!, main goal is to enhance those key competences which will help aspiring women entrepreneurs to get motivated and start their own business.
On 11th and 12th December we met in Cyprus the parterns of the project, which will be involved for the next 2 years in the project activities, in order to start planning next steps. A first research on women entrepreneurs’ needs in Cyprus, Greece, Portugal Slovenia, Italy, Germany will be followed by the development of an on-line self-assessment tool, which will help aspiring women entrepreneurs to acquire key competences to work in the entrepreneurial sector.
At a later stage, partnership work will focus on the development of online training programme addressed to aspiring women entrepreneurs.
Once the online training programme is ready, we will arrange the Show Me The Path workshop in Palermo; an event which will let aspiring women entrepreneurs test the tools developed during the project and their key competences on the entrepreneurial sector.
