About Us

The Commission note that “even though there are more women than men in Europe, female entrepreneurs represent only a third of the self-employed in the EU, as such, it is imperative that suitable supports and adequate training is provided to encourage European women into self-employment. That’s where BizMiz comes in. To ensure that women can harness the full potential of the latest trends in Internet entrepreneurship through the use of modern social media platforms, there is a need for bespoke next generation on-line entrepreneurship training. In order to deliver this training, it is first necessary to build the competence and confidence of VET professionals to deliver training in how to use modern social media platforms in the field of entrepreneurship. This is the gap in current VET provision that the BizMiz project will address through the bespoke in-service training programme.
BizMiz aims to empower women to develop high-quality skills and digital competence, that will support them to achieve their full potential as next generation women in technology entrepreneurs! To achieve this, BizMiz will develop and provide an online entrepreneurship training course focusing on how to effectively take advantage of modern social media platforms in the field of entrepreneurship which will be available free of charge.
