In today’s really competitive economy, start-ups are faced with various challenges. In fact, studies show that more than 50% of new businesses fail within the first 5 years of their business lifecycle. Additionally, there has been a lack of anticipation of skill requirements and formative routes for new entrepreneurs.
As a pan-European strategic partnership project, VET4Start-UP encourages the spirit of entrepreneurship via several activities but mainly by imparting skills in a new form and content-set. This project aims to educate and train anyone interested in start-ups thanks to a new e-learning platform MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and other useful and tailor-made materials and resources. VET4Start-UP seeks to improve the level of key competences and skills needed by new entrepreneurs through Vocational and Educational Training.
The “VET4Start-UP” Erasmus+ Project is organizing a multiplier event which will be taking place in Smart City, Malta on 7th November 2016.
This one day event will be focusing on not only sharing the results of VET4Start-up project, but also the experiences of a group of senior experts and other projects working towards the further improvement of knowledge, skills and competences of start-ups and entrepreneurs. From ideation to commercialisation, funding and communication techniques (“world cafe” or “pitching”), testing of the MOOC platform and checking the SkillCatch rapid learning free authoring tools, all these are part of our agenda for the day.
By bringing together a group of new and potential entrepreneurs, VET and business stakeholders, the Malta multiplier event intends to further stimulate and support successful Maltese entrepreneurship and economic growth.
