The Three Question Model Of Developing Social Entrepreneurs
The 3 Question Model (T3QM) will develop, test, evaluate and valorize the 3QM EU Model. T3QM is an innovative way for adult educators to offer high quality and needs focused coaching to (social) start-up founders. Adult learners (entrepreneur) will be able, through this approach, to develop a fledgling start-up into an impactful and income generating enterprise. T3QM is focused on practical business experience and the methodology comes from BTF (a UK enterprise incubator) blended methodology of (social) business support comprising of micro-investment, start-ups and incubation. T3QM EU will enable a wide variety of aspirant entrepreneurs, from backgrounds of need and whom fail to access traditional support, to practically develop their enterprise ideas. They will approach business development not as a theoretical exercise, but from the perspective of the market and of the entrepreneur. In this way, they can also analyze all the steps needed to start a business and create employment.
Therefore, the rationale is to create an innovative adult education pathway that emphasizes entrepreneurship and self-employment as proven and successful ways of overcoming traditional barriers and persistent unemployment.
