The partners (LUA Faculty of Economics and Social Development LV, Klaipeda Science and Technology Park LT, Daugavpils University LV, Visaginas House of Creativity LT, Ventspils Youth Council LV, Public Institution Panevėžys Labour Market Training Centre LT) will develop and conduct Business Simulation Games imitating real-life situations most newly-established companies face and “Be involved” seminars designed according to the interactive “Get inspired – help – share – analyse” concept. ICT Business Simulator imitating a process of business start-up and development will be launched.
Target groups who will benefit from the project are students and recent graduates in business science, young people who have a business idea and/or willing to start their own business and founders of newly-established enterprises.
The project goes beyond the existing practice and integrated multiple elements: principles of informal game-based learning; main principles of business disciplines; experience of existing entrepreneurs; real-life business cases. The format of the solutions allows looking at entrepreneurship from different angles, thus providing an all-round understanding of it.
