MOTIVATION: SEQUEL is an acronym for “Sustainable Enterprises with Qualified Entrepreneurs”. Europe has been dealing with the effects of the most serious economic crisis since 2008. As a result of this crisis, there are over 25 million unemployed for the first time in Europe. EU foreseen that entrepreneurship is an important way out of the economic crisis according to its 2020 Strategy. Europe has also another challenge, which is a change in priorities of Europeans.

For 45 % of Europeans self-employment was their first choice in 2010, now this percentage is down to 37 %. The “Quality life index” indicated that the top 20 countries are also the most entrepreneurial countries as well. This fact proves that entrepreneurship has a key role to overcome this economic crisis.

PURPOSE: Effective implementation of a developed module at the end of this project will give an opportunity to facilitate international exchange of experiences between entrepreneurs and gain networking skills to do business with cross border peers. Beside these abilities, with the SEQUEL project entrepreneurs will strengthen their skills on better use of IT and that helps new businesses to be more successful and competitive. In current economic crises, youth entrepreneurs represent a fundamental element in creating significant recovery in Europe. This is why our main target is a youth entrepreneur in this project. The SEQUEL project will make entrepreneurship more sustainable, young entrepreneurs more qualified and innovative by developing more practical IT based entrepreneurship module.
