  • Competence development creates a basis for improving the well-being of entrepreneurs at work and improving the productivity of companies, which creates growth opportunities.
  • To pilot group activities (peer-groups and focus-groups) for micro-entrepreneurs and, based on the experiences and data gathered during the project, to develop a new hybrid service model that combines these forms of support activities. The goal of such a model is to better meet the individual needs of entrepreneurs.
