“L2L ENTREPRENEURSHIP” is an EU- Funded programme through Erasmus+ KA2 – Strategic Partnerships for Vocational Education and Training.
The programme has been designed to support low skilled young entrepreneurs to develop and realize business ideas to be launched on the European and global markets. The partnership will produce a free training course that will provide tools in all the essential aspects of the entrepreneurship process leading to the creation of a winning Business Plan. The on-line training course will be available on an e-learning platform for young aspiring businessmen, trainees and also for expert trainers who can use it as a support tool for face to face lessons and for distance learning.
