This project offers an opportunity to deepen your and your fellow students’ understanding of the importance of the digital and entrepreneurial competencies for your future successful careers. 

Top performers from the business world will help you understand how digital technologies drive technological progress and build sustainable businesses, and will give you significant exposure to best practices and attitudes that foster innovation, invention and entrepreneurship, enlarge networks, and improve career opportunities.

Your participation in the project and interaction with business experts and students from another country will help you develop and maintain digital and entrepreneurial competencies, as well as “global” skills, needed to create new networks in the digital society and match these skills with diverse occupations.  


You and your fellow students will form teams of four and create your teams’ branding. You will explore resources and interact with business experts to come up with innovative ideas addressing a specific task or problem related to digital entrepreneurship and work together to develop your proposed solutions into concept papers. You will compete with other teams and present your projects to a jury of business experts who will select the winning teams.

Teams will communicate and collaborate using the project’s web site, virtual meeting technology hosted by your teachers, email and Skype.

Members of the winning teams will travel to each other’s city to meet their teammates in person.
