Let's get practical!

The purpose of this module is to let the young people continue to work on their entrepreneurial idea and then put it into practice. This module should support young people on creating a Business Model Canva from a small idea. The module is not intended to be used to create an actual Entrepreneurial topic but it is intended to make young people understand how it could be used, the different processes and how they could potentially apply the knowledge.

The ENTREPVET Entrepreneurial journey is designed to build their employability skills and in particular in this module, Key Digital Skills for Marketing.¬† The model also links to employability skills and EntreComp competences. Throughout the module, young people are encouraged and supported to document their thoughts and to share their views with others, without fear of ‚Äėgetting it wrong‚Äô.

This last module wants to help young people feel as entrepreneurs and help them shape one idea into reality.
