Story telling- Young Entrepreneurs 

logo prodest

Entrepreneurship is recognized as a powerful driver of economic growth and job creation: it creates new companies and jobs, opens up new markets, and nurtures new skills and capabilities. One of the main recommendations by the EU Commission Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan (2012) is to promote entrepreneurial education and training, however, the uptake and the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education in Europe are still far from being fully satisfactory. This is mainly due to lack of suitable materials and lack of skills in trainers.

Storytelling is a very effective methodology because it brings together the rational and the emotional, and elicits identification and emulation in the listener. The growth and ubiquitous diffusion of the web makes it possible to use  digital storytelling  in the training and educational field to great effect.

This project developed a  sense of initiative and entrepreneurship with a number of videos and resources  in different formats. Young entrepreneurs tell how they started their business, what challenges they face and what skills they need in their day-to-day activity. The videos found on  YouTube and can be accessed by educators and trainers in their activities with NEETS, apprentices, students in secondary education, or university.
