WINNER unlocks the pathway to key competencies acquisition and entrepreneurship stimulus triggering for adult women.
Taking into consideration the current perceptions and attitudes on female entrepreneurship, the WINNER project delivers accessible entrepreneurship training and counselling support, led by social and market needs. It creates effective linkages with the mainstream community to foster women-specific guidance, combating gender bias and relevant behaviours.
The project’s initial priority is to increase entrepreneurship learning opportunities for adult women, offering a toolkit of digital skills through an educational mentor-trainee interaction that fosters blended and autonomous learning.
The partners’ main goal is to create a direct connection between the needs of the women interested in entrepreneurship and the WINNER objectives, producing high-quality impact in the short and in the long term.
Online Platform & Open Call Launching
The platform promotes autonomous learning, facilitating inexperienced users to navigate its training content and features. The architecture of the platform stimulates intellectual curiosity and supports creative engagement by placing the learner at the center of the procedure. All virtual features of the WINNER platform are created to be functional and flexible to avoid rigidity and virtual stiffness. The platform includes community-building features such as blogs, virtual meeting rooms and social networking applications, and it is the cornerstone for Open Call Launching.
