EntreComp defines entrepreneurship in all its dimensions in a common language. It is a broad

concept, so in addition to its application toward starups, the EntreComp framework is valuable

for lifelong learning, individual growth and enhanced employability. While EntreComp can be applied to starting an entrepreneurial venture startup, working environments can embrace the

spirit of entrepreneurship through EntreComp training in order to allow a company to create or invent products and services that complement core business offering, innovate or utilize

technology more efficiently. When combined with inquiry-based learning, education systems

can infuse EntreComp into any discipline or subject matter to improve learning outcomes,

bolster knowledge deepening and help their students acquire skills that will propel them

throughout the education continuum and into the workforce. Retirees can apply EntreComp

toward becoming entrepreneurs or use their extensive experience, expertise and background

in volunteering to help others become entrepreneurs. The public sector can offer EntreComp training to employees and section/department heads to promote the development of entrepreneurship skills in the workplace to overcome common challenges, to transform

operations with SMART technologies and to support the process of becoming a resilient community. Friends and families can come together to engage in an  entrepreneurial venture

to create a needed  product or service for a market niche.

Why does EntreComp matter?

​​An important objective in conducting EntreComp training is enabling individuals to transform

ideas and opportunities into products and services of societal value by applying entrepreneurship

principles toward addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (i.e. the

SDGs or Global Goals).  The Global Goals are inter-related and intertwined with economic development, job creation and improved living conditions that are also the ultimate objectives

of EntreComp Education & Training.

Activities around entrepreneurship education and training aimed at improving

Growing Entrepreneurship

With EntreComp

Ten years ago, the European

Commission identified a sense of

initiative and entrepreneurship as

one of the eight key competences

necessary for a knowledge-based society.

The EntreComp framework proposes a

shared definition of entrepreneurship as a

competence, with the aim to raise consensus among

varied stakeholders and to establish a bridge between

the worlds of education and work.

The EntreComp Framework constitutes the building blocks of 

entrepreneurship as a competence. The framework is composed

of three areas with five competences each along a progression

model ​that supports specified learning outcomes.
