Introduction to Entrepreneurship

Anadolu University
Entrepreneurship is defined as value creation by observing business

opportunities. In Recommendation of the European Parliament and the Council

of 18 December 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning, one of the eight

key competences is “sense of initiative and entrepreneurship”. Today,

unemployment is an important challenge with which not only developing but also

developed countries are faced. In this respect, entrepreneurship is important for

social policies, as well as for economic policies. Growth and stability, in other

words development of a country, is dependent on investments and the

establishment of innovative businesses that manufacture products with high

added value. That is why developing innovation and entrepreneurship cultures

and creating entrepreneurship ecosystems are of particular importance for

individuals, businesses and society. Another key competence defined by the

European Council is technology literacy, which requires individuals to use

technology effectively and generate innovative products by means of technology.

This course is designed to develop both technology and entrepreneurship skills.
