This practice has been very successful in Greece throughout the years of its implementation, offering a complete training, mentoring, coaching scheme as well as after support to beneficiaries. It might be the most comprehensive program running in Greece with support of many private companies, associations and other organizations.
The BCC program is comprised by three compulsory modules:
- 10 seminars on development of entrepreneurial competences (business model canvas, (digital) marketing, branding, public speaking, taxation, pitching etc.)
