In this course you will turn your practical experience and entrepreneurial competencies into credits. Create a personal plan with the support of a HUBS coach and start developing your entrepreneurial skills!
Building an Entrepreneurial Portfolio is a way to bring your practical experience about entrepreneurship and working skills to be part of your curriculum. Relevant examples of such a practical experience are for example developing a business idea or existing business, volunteering to work in an entrepreneurial association or training program related to entrepreneurship or working life skills (for example accelerator etc.)
Building an Entrepreneurial Portfolio is usually done individually, but you can also team up with your friend and complete some tasks together!
The content of this course is tailored individually with you and will be based on your personal learning targets. This is done together with a coach.
The course may include studies related to entrepreneurship, such as e.g. work periods, collaborative projects or starting your own business, developing your existing business and carrying out various experiments.
Your studies may also include literature and related lectures/seminars. During the course, you draw up a personal plan and report on the results as agreed with the coach.
