A young person’s guide to becoming an entrepreneur.
The students of all the participating schools will contribute to the creation of a comprehensive guide on how to become a successful entrepreneur. This will include a description of the skills and attributes that are required (such as innovation, ability to take risks, clear vision and focus and durability). The guide will also include detailed information on the practical steps to setting up and running a small business enterprise. The students will have produced their own business plans throughout the activities. This guide will inform future potential young entrepreneurs about what is needed to be successful. The information will be presented in a written format but also as an ‘app’ that can be downloaded to mobile devices. This is seen as an appropriate and user-friendly way to make the information available to the younger target group.
