The project goal is to integrate an entrepreneurial education model to foster the employability of recent graduate students attending universities in humanities and arts, education and social science. Data from certain countries in Europe show that the majority of entrepreneurship courses are offered in business and economic studies. Therefore, the real challenge is to make entrepreneurship education accessible to all students. In particular, Hillary wants to inspire and support female students close to graduation attending universities in humanities and arts, educational and social science who face serious difficulties in the transition from university to work to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set and attitude. Indeed, the project aims at proving them the right business skills and raise awareness about social entrepreneurship and self-employment as potential career option. In order to transform societal challenges into gender-friendly entrepreneurial initiatives led by woman entrepreneurs the project foresees an education model based on crowd-mentoring and OPEN and GROUP learning.
