subjects as:
• Introduction to Business
• Generation of Business Ideas and their analysis
• Business Model Canvas
• Pitching
• Marketing, including prices and communication
• Financial Management, including budgeting and simple book-keeping

- Chapter 3: Non-Formal Education Methods and Tools: Offers eleven non-formal education methods and tools, fit for the target group. The methods were designed to:
• Support reflection on personal potential
• Support reflection on the type business the participants would like to have
• Support the participants to generate a business idea
• Build participants’ capacity to overcome the fear of failure
• Build participants’ capacity to overcome stereotypes, social obstacles when
engaging in a entrepreneurial venture
