What is EntreComp?
Where does EntreComp learning take place?
Our entrepreneurship training model consists
of four components:
Why does EntreComp matter?
EntreComp learning can take place in both formal and non-formal learning
environments. Modules around the 15 competences are delivered via elearning
mechanisms. Training activity is coordinated through our partners - entrepreneurship
ecosystems; educational institutions and other learning environments; nonprofit
organizations and affinity groups; private sector enterprises and public sector
institutions. Our work takes us around the globe, and we are equipped to bring
our model anywhere on Earth.
EntreComp forms the basis for several initiatives such as One Plan 4 One Planet,
helping young people not in employment, education or training acquire skills for
entrepreneurship and the workforce.
Because entrepreneurship is universally seen as the spark of prosperity, creating
new jobs and new businesses, new ways to deliver basic services and new ways
of seeing the world, EntreComp Education & Training aims at helping spur
economic growth and create jobs and arm students with skillsets for success in
education, the job market and life. EntreComp is positioned to help entrepreneurs
generate new knowledge, find new uses for technology and create new business
models. An important objective in conducting EntreComp training is enabling
individuals to transform ideas and opportunities into products and services of
societal value by applying entrepreneurship principles toward addressing the
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (i.e. the SDGs or Global Goals).
The Global Goals are inter-related and intertwined with economic development,
job creation and improved living conditions that are also the ultimate objectives
of EntreComp Education & Training. Contact us if you want to bring our model
to your region!

to bring our vision to life: "A world in which every learner can acquire the
entrepreneurial skills needed to be alert and responsive to change and
capable of designing and implementing new solutions to complex problems."
* Taking the initiative
* Planning and management
* Coping with uncertainty, ambiguity and risk
* Working with others
* Learning through experience
Anyone, at any age, at any stage in life can
engage in EntreComp training to become
entrepreneurial - that is, acquiring the
ability to transform opportunities
and ideas into products and
services that have value to others.
A growth mindset is the underlying beliefs that orient our behaviors and a
way of thinking - a learned cognitive modelthat is acquired slowly and subtly,
over a long period of time as the result of experiences. A growth mindset,
versus a fixed mindset, consists of the set of attitudes, skills and behaviors
that individuals need to succeed, not only in entrepreneurship but also
academically, personally and professionally. These include: initiative and
self-direction, risk-taking, flexibility and adaptability, creativity and
innovation, critical thinking and problem solving. Other definitions
include the ability to see opportunities, marshal resources and create value.

The EntreComp Open Badge Platform will serve as a common support
system for qualification transparency of skills acquired during training.
Digital badges will be issued and available for download upon completing
the three components of training: EntreComp Entrepreneurship Education,
Inquiry-Based Learning and Acquiring a Growth Mindset.
"The Building Blocks of Entrepreneurship" embraces EntreComp
as its foundational basis to translate the concept of “entrepreneurship”
into a model with which it is possible to speak about entrepreneurship
in all its dimensions. EntreComp supports a methodology and
corresponding tool that allows the competency elements in the area
of knowledge, attitude and skills to be measured. The results are the
starting point for the further development of the underlying competencies
and associated indicators. The entrepreneurship is thus made transparent and
EntreComp defines entrepreneurship in all its dimensions. It is a broad concept,
so in addition to its application toward starups, it is valuable for lifelong learning,
individual growth and enhanced employability. EntreComp can be applied toward
starting an entrepreneurial venture startup. Working environments can embrace the
spirit of entrepreneurship through EntreComp training in order to allow a company
to create or invent products and services that complement core business offering,
innovate or utilize technology more efficiently. Education systems can infuse
EntreComp into any discipline or subject matter to improve learning outcomes,
bolster knowledge deepening and help their students acquire skills that will propel
them throughout the education continuum and into the workforce. Retirees can apply
EntreComp towards becoming entrepreneurs themselves or use their extensive
experience, expertise and background in volunteering to help others become entrepreneurs.
The public sector can offer EntreComp training to employees and section/department
heads to promote the development of entrepreneurship skills in the workplace to
overcome common challenges, to transform operations with SMART technologies
and to support the process of becoming a resilient community. Families can come together
to engage in an entrepreneurial venture to create a needed product or service for a market
Inquiry-Based Learning is real world learning in problem-solving that
complements entrepreneurship education for knowledge deepening.
Real world learning supported by our training model offers a holistic and
flexible approach to learning in preparation for acquiring 21st Century
skills needed in the workforce, in entrepreneurship and for success
throughout the education continuum. RWL is often referred to as
Phenomenon or Experietial Learning - and is based on the the same
problem-solving methods used in scientific communities. This is the
systemic changes needed to adopt an interdisciplinary approach to problem
solving that leads toward understanding core concepts more thoroughly,
unlocking creativity and acquiring the skillsets so important in entrepreneurship.
Ten years ago, the European Commission
identified a sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
as one of the eight key competences necessary for a
knowledge-based society. The EntreComp framework
proposes a shared definition of entrepreneurship as a
competence, with the aim to raise consensus among all
stakeholders and to establish a bridge between the worlds
of education and work.The EntreComp Framework constitutes
the building blocks of entrepreneurship as a competence. The
framework is composed of three areas with five competences each
along a progression model that supports specified learning outcomes.
