entreTime is a new entrepreneurship education initiative, funded by the European Union, aimed at upskilling educators within higher education. 

Following our specific philosophy “teaching through entrepreneurship”, a pool of experienced professionals in the domain has developed a three-month train-the-trainer programme. The entreTime training programme is an excellent learning experience for:

  • Improving an educator's personal development
  • Understanding the value of entrepreneurial competences as practical life skills
  • Triggering entrepreneurial spirit and societal responsibility among enterprising students
During the three-year project (2020-2022) the concept was validated by participating top-level educators across Europe in two pilot editions. The resulting entretime Toolkit is now available to all Higher Educations Institutions.
