TE Manifesto

Support and subscribe the European Transnational Entrepreneurship Manifesto

The Manifesto of the Project GLOBAL-SPIN will be created by the partners via a process of consultation, feedback, and validation with other experts in the area of transnational entrepreneurship. The resulting Manifesto will aim to inspire other entrepreneurs by sharing important steps to becoming transnational. These results will work towards to helping to maximize the success and growth in internationalization of European entrepreneurs and their Spin-Offs.

Benefits

GLOBAL-SPIN goes above and beyond traditional approaches and methodologies in corporate learning to properly respond to the new training challenges coming of globalized (or trying to internationalize) Spin-Offs, and the need to assess the effectiveness of this learning at three levels: for employees, for managers and for organizations.

Transnational Entrepreneurs´ Skills
Internationalization Strategies´ Assessment
New Corporate Learning Approach
Open Education Resources

The project looks to boost innovation in business and higher education through the joint development of an innovative ICT based learning solution for a challenging issue: the demand of transnational entrepreneurship skills by the academic Spin-Offs teams to facilitate their survival and growth in the context of global markets.

Who We Are

With the support of the European Union and the Erasmus+ Programme, a project team consisting of a Higher Education Foundation, two Universities, and four companies specialized in consultancy, training and research, is developing the project GLOBAL-SPIN -Transnational Entrepreneurship and Corporate Learning: Fostering Effective Internationalization Strategies in Academic Spin-Offs.
