Entrepreneurship is about the mindset of an individual who takes actions towards a desirable future!

Studying. At the Entrepreneur Academy.

At the Entrepreneur Academy, we focus on training the skills and competencies needed for you to create a successful future for yourself and others. It’s all about the skills that allow you to create a future that fits you.

In other words, we help you to get the basics right for you to build your own path and successful career, business and life.

Unlike studying at a university or college, there is no age limit or other restrictions. All you need is the desire to change your life for the better and the willingness to put some effort into it.

Besides our Learning Programs, we manage several Alumni Groups for qualified students to explore entrepreneurship further or to train and practise specific skills to a higher level. Participation in those groups is available to all students who passed one or more of our Learning Programs.

Our Curriculum is based on 60 skills divided into 15  skill groups. For each skill, we have up to eight training levels. (Please find more detailed information here)

The first three levels are part of Learning Programs. The other five levels are trained and practised in our Alumni Groups.

Table of Contents

Competencies. Three skill sections.

As mentioned above, we defined 15 core entrepreneurial skill groups divided into three skill sections.

There is no specific order on where to start. The idea is to start with the skills you are most interested in. Then, during your training, you will learn how they all interact. It doesn’t mean you need to study and practice all of them before you feel comfortable on your entrepreneurial journey. Instead, you select the program which contains the most essential skills for the stage you’re at and you take it from there. If you are not sure what skills would be best for you, we suggest choosing one of our programs to start with. Those are designed to get you started on the right track and contain the skills that have shown to be the most valuable for new entrepreneurs.

Note: Selecting any of the groups will bring you to the individual pages, describing the skills included and what you can expect to get out of it.
