Mission:Enterprise hosts seasonal schools around the world
On September 1, 2019, the new Mission:Enterprise project was launched at the Startup Center of the Stuttgart Media University (HdM). Mission:Enterprise is a project within the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for students – BWS plus, a program of the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung. The project will be supported over three years with a sum of 146,000 euros. The HdM Startup Center is in charge of the project which connects not only the students with each other but also the teachers of entrepreneurship education. Other participating universities are the Sapir College (Israel), the University Politehnica of Bucharest (Romania) and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (Mexico).
The aim of the project is to create an international network of universities focusing on entrepreneurship, which will offer regular seasonal schools on the topic, exchange professional information and, after the end of the funding period, will be sustainably anchored via eLearning modules. The seasonal schools will take place in Germany, Israel, Romania and Mexico and will enable transcontinental cooperation between students and teachers on various focal points in the field of entrepreneurship.
Project manager and contact person at the HdM Startup Center is Violetta Fasulo.
The Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM supports the international exchange of students and vocationally qualified people. Since 2001, it has enabled more than 20,000 young people from Baden-Württemberg to gain experience abroad and allowed scholarship holders from other countries to visit Baden-Württemberg. Approximately 1,500 young people receive a Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM each year.
