My Business

The aim of the project MYBUSINESS (2014 - 2016, co-funded by Erasmus+) was to create and test a customised training programme tailored to older unemployed people (over 50 years of age) who were interested in becoming self-employed or entrepreneurs. This training was based on the needs and aims of the participants to strengthen their entrepreneurial skills and competences while taking advantage of their life experience and skills. The project was financed by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Programme and its main objective was to increase the managerial and entrepreneurial skills of older unemployed, giving them confidence and providing them with the tools to create their own business and to promote lifelong learning and employability. This project was implemented by a consortium of six partners from six European countries (Romania, Ireland, Belgium, Greece, Spain, and Austria)
