Mentoring, Networking and Training for European Entrepreneurs
VITECO participates in the development of the project MENTEE: Mentoring, Networking and Training for European Entrepreneurs, under the domain of Erasmus+ programme, “Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training”. The project aims to support want-to-be and young entrepreneurs across Europe, providing them practical entrepreneurial experiences and know-how, together with informal competencies that could be ensured by the constant connection created with mentors/experienced entrepreneurs.
In particular, MENTEE wants to ensure a mentoring process for all entrepreneurs that had been involved in the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme (EYE), which promotes exchanges between new entrepreneurs and experienced ones from different countries in Europe. After the end of their relationship, MEENTE offers to the participants of the EYE programme mentoring circles and connects them on the web for future opportunities. In such a way, it will be created a network where young entrepreneurs could find reliable partners, mentors, and up-to-date information or opportunities for startup.
VITECO is the lead partner for the ICT activities, in the range of the intellectual output “Social Collaborative & Learning Platform for Young Entrepreneurs”, being in charge of the development of a website and a Collaborative e-Learning and Networking Platform, created to support the Mentoring Circles programme, where sharing learning and entrepreneurial skills. VITECO, in cooperation with all partners, will also produce the e-learning modules, interactive contents to enhance self-reflection and self-development skills.
