A great idea without execution has no value! Entrepreneurship is when you act upon opportunities and ideas and transform them into value for others. To transform ideas into value requires concrete action. This means you have to move, go for it and take action to make things happen, to realize your dream, to feel success, to create value for yourself, your surroundings, your community or even for the world.
This Into Action Playlist is one of the 3 learning playlist we developed to help you create awareness, activate, train and develop a entrepreneurial mind, attitude and skills.
This playlist includes activities to support you to understand what it takes to go into action or realize things and the skills/steps you need to know about and go through to make sure you succeed.
The activities on this playlist are based on Entrecomp (The Entrepreneurship Competence Framework) The Entrecomp framework identifies entrepreneurial competences which are seen as transversal competence. Transversal competences are competences that applies to all spheres of life: from nurturing personal development, to actively participating in society, to (re)entering the job market as an employee or as a self-employed person, and also to starting up ventures (cultural, social or commercial). This competence model is used to define the Open Badges that you can earn during this learning playlist.
