A PRESENTATION OF SM@RT
Students making an enterprise in real time Sm@rt is a project funded by European Union Erasmus+ program started in 2014.
Our project was one of the first, and few, accepted in first round. Our main goal is to enhance and to encourage seeing entrepreneurship as a career choice in the future Europe. Our partners are Italy, Spain, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Finland as coordinating country. We will be working with project until spring 2017 and hopefully beyond that too.
started using statistics as a business idea. We had companies using opinion polls, marketing surveys and even gambling. There is always an existing company or entrepreneur to be interviewed as a guidance to topic. We need to calculate economics, to choose a company structure, to look for the existing legislation, the operatives to start a business. All are things normal starting entrepreneur would do. Some themes are easier and some harder. For example, building a tourist company working was a funny experience for students, and educational as well, as some of our schools are not located in tourist areas. Here, in Italy we are representing companies based on using foreign languages. You use languages for sure, but making it as a working business idea is not that easy.
local products in a fair for international audience. Those results will be shown in Bulgaria in spring 2016. We still go to Czech Republic with a challenging theme using mathematics and we finish this project with an event building company in Finland. We certainly hope more and more students to think entrepreneurship as a career. Even one out of ten will be a good result. Without small companies there will no big ones either. Our common Europe needs new ways to compete in today’s economic world challenged by hardworking rivals. This project is our answer and legacy for our students and local communities as well.
The main idea is to build small companies around normal school subjects. First we We are halfway in our project. After Italy we continue with companies marketing
