The online course “OpEn: A learning walk in digital entrepreneurship” is targeting those self-employed, young and new entrepreneurs either just opening up their business or planning to do so in the near future.  The aim is to provide inspiration and support in developing a digital business.

OpEn is based on self-paced learning over a recommended duration of 8 weeks, considering that up to 4 hours per week can be dedicated in engaging with material on the course.  It is available in four languages (EnglishGreekItalian and Spanish) and is structured around three main areas:

  • Business Development: supporting the development of fundamental skills on business management
  • Digital Development: developing capabilities in how digital technologies can be deployed in your business
  • Personal Development: developing excellence in leadership, negotiating and collaborating skills

The OpEn course was implemented by the project "Open up Entrepreneruship", funded by the Erasmus+ program through the National State Scholarships Foundation (IKY).
