Unemployment is one of the biggest challenges that Europe is facing in the context of economic crisis in which we are submerged. One of the most affected groups of population suffering from unemployment is senior workers.
Most of mature unemployed are often not aware of the possibility of creating their own businesses by exploiting their many years of experience and acquired knowledge. To become entrepreneurs they need to acquire proper business skills and competences on entrepreneurial development.
MYBUSINESS is an Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships project funded by the European Commission, which aims to foster the labor market reintegration of senior unemployed by empowering education and training to create their own business and develop their entrepreneurial skills and spirit.
To this purpose, the project shall create and test a customised action programme tailored to unemployed seniors interested in becoming self-employed or entrepreneur, on the basis on their own identified needs and barriers, strengthening their entrepreneurial skills and competences while taking advantage of their experience and promoting self-confidence, contributing not only to the creation of new jobs, but also addressing wider social and economic challenges related to aging population.
