The main purpose of the YENTELS project (www.yentels.com) is to offer young people in Europe educational programs that stimulate innovative ideas and prepare them to start their own companies. The project developed an extensive set of training materials based on simulation / computer game that supports the achievement of entrepreneurial skills that are necessary for preparing and starting your own business.
The WENTELS project (www.wentels.com) is aimed at women who want to return to the labor market after a period of forced absence (e.g. due to maternity), immigrant women, women who are currently entrepreneurs, but are looking for new business opportunities and to young women who have never worked.
Women, especially young women, immigrant women and women returning to work are among the most affected by the current European economic crisis. This is especially true for countries that have high unemployment levels and cuts in public spending on social services such as care for children or elderly people.
The YEU project (www.yeu.eu) aims to provide young people living in the regions of Europe with the highest level of youth unemployment, more effective online entrepreneurship training so that they are able to start their own business as an alternative to unemployment.
