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 with 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 those entrepreneurs that have 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 provides the EYE programme participants with mentoring circles and connects them on the web for future opportunities. In such a way, it is created a network where young entrepreneurs can find reliable partners, mentors, and up-to-date information or opportunities for start-up.
VITECO is the lead partner of 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 eLearning and Networking Platform, created to support the Mentoring Circles programme, where sharing learning and entrepreneurial skills. VITECO, in cooperation with all partners, also produces the eLearning courses, interactive contents to enhance self-reflection and self-development skills.
