Erasmus + Ka2 - Chess: Creative Intrapreneurship Empowerment Skills 2019 – 2021
CHESS – Creative Intrapreneurship Empowerment Skills aims at providing an integrated support, tailored to the needs and specificities of young people in the age group 20-29 from the creative industries, who either already possess working experience (currently employed or not), or have never been employed (job-seekers and discouraged individuals), through development and validation of innovative integrated training tools and material in order to:
increase their motivation and self-awareness;
create incentives for acquiring new intrapreneurship-related skills;
promote their efficient and sustainable integration into employment and society.
The proposed project aims at supporting young entrepreneurs in so-called creative industries, establish competitive and viable micro-businesses. To enhance their effectiveness and viability through transnational cooperation among CHESS entrepreneurs in different partner countries will be promoted through both practical and theoretical support. Educational activities (e.g. workshops and seminars – both in class and online – will be organized. A digital platform will be constructed to facilitate training and cooperation among partners, trainers and trainees. Transnational mobility will also be organized to facilitate entrepreneurs’ and supporting organizations’ learning from each other.

𝟏. Fear will lead us nowhere: it is essential not to be afraid of taking risks and being resilient.
