The Open Mind project develops and pilot an innovative gamified open online course in social entrepreneurship for women and students from non-business studies

Despite the positive impact that social enterprises have on the economy and society in general, currently, the majority of entrepreneurship courses are offered in business and economic studies, so in fact, most students have no possibility of taking part in entrepreneurial courses and programs. Eurostat and GEM data show that two-thirds of young people and women in the EU believe they do not have the knowledge or skills to start a business, which is one of the most significant barriers to business creation.

Investing in entrepreneurship education is one of the highest return investments Europe can make, the Entrepreneurship Action Plan 2020 stresses. This requires the transversal competencies, required in social entrepreneurship to become mainstream – not only for students in business studies but also for those in humanities, arts, sciences and technologies.

To address these challenges, the Open Mind project develops and pilot an innovative gamified open online course in social entrepreneurship for women and students from non-business studies.
