Objective of the grant project: developing, in cooperation with a transnational partner, mobile tools enabling remote education of entrepreneurs and deepening their competences in the field of company development
The goal will be achieved through: joint development and implementation of new solutions with a partner
The new solution “Systemic School” will be introduced into the practical activities of Grupa Profesja, as part of supporting the entrepreneurship development of MSMEs in Poland.
The target group of the grant project are people running a business, a micro-enterprise, including people with disabilities. The basic problem of microenterprises (including sole proprietorships) is the issue of company survival. The most common reasons for closing companies include the lack of financial resources for development and strategic plans, inability to manage the company in the long term, lack of knowledge or information on basic economic and legal issues related to entrepreneurship.
As part of the project, a new solution will be created – a platform and a mobile application, it will be created to extend bridging support for entrepreneurs benefiting from funding under projects, and for companies not covered by this type of support – it will be a valuable and innovative source of knowledge.
The solution developed with a transnational partner can also be used, for example, by institutions in the areas of formal education, in entrepreneurship lessons, and in educating students of social and economic faculties.

As part of the project, the Profesja Group combines traditional classroom training in the basics of entrepreneurship (conducted as part of a standard project) with a modern form of educational activity conducted remotely using information technologies (conducted as part of a grant project). Both forms of training available to project participants create the so-called blended learning method. It has specific advantages, first of all, it allows a flexible way of designing and implementing training, taking into account the needs of the group of participants, goals, topics, and the specificity of a given industry. The advantage of B-learning is the ability to communicate using modern media, online contacts with a trainer, industry expert or other entrepreneurs (networking). The organization of training as part of B-learning is not forced, it is limited by the possibilities of training participants (time, place), I give much more freedom than traditional training, which increases the effectiveness of supporting young entrepreneurs.
