Learning outcomes
You identify and assess your entrepreneurial behaviour and competencies. Your competence development and personal growth is further supported in a network of professionals. You develop your business idea into a business model or plan. Alternatively, you can also make a business plan for another SME or family business. You can start your own business but it is not a requirement.
