E-learning STARTUP course:

Entrepreneurship among young people with disabilities 

The STARTUP program is an international collaboration between five organizations that want to promote business and entrepreneurship to more people with disabilities.

Funded through Erasmus + and with partners from Chile, Greece, Malaysia and the United Kingdom, the project aims to improve both access to and quality of vocational training for support workers, job coaches, youth workers and others supporting people with disabilities to explore options in employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.

By creating an e-learning platform and an online community, STARTUP seeks to improve entrepreneurial skills and knowledge and help create a better understanding for people with disabilities.

The content of the e-Module will:

  • Recognizes that developing business initiatives for and with people with disabilities requires resilience, motivation and belief in the potential and ability of people with disabilities to support them.
