As official side event of the 8th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for Danube Region (EUSDR) under the presidency of Romania, YES! EUSDR is established as a platform for discussing tools and programs which empower young people to get engaged in entrepreneurship by reinforcing their high-level and transversal competences. Stakeholders and decision makers from education institutions, public administration and private business meet in order to initiate solutions for knowledge based entrepreneurship.
Generating an entrepreneurial mindset should start in early stage of life in order to achieve maximum proficiency in all 15 key competences that are descripted in Entrepreneurship Competence Framework. Programs to support start-up enterprises exist. Before using those programs, a personal decision on establishing and managing an enterprise must be taken. Insufficient awareness and a lack in motivation to become entrepreneur is a European societal challenge – at Annual Forum 2019 tackled by YES! EUSDR. Participants discuss how to foster competences to turn ideas into actions.
