Entrepreneurial Herstory: Embracing Gender Oriented Approach for Entrepreneurial Growth through the Lens of Intersectionality and Applauding the Virtues of Mistakeful Learning

The ‘Entrepreneurial Herstory’ Erasmus Plus project aims to enhance the entrepreneurial mindset among young entrepreneurs. It focuses on identifying role models away from toxic gendered stereotypes and values.

This will be achieved by giving minorities and underrepresented communities a voice to express their stories and unfold their memoirs in terms of unconventional entrepreneurship.

Project objectives

Entrepreneurial Herstory will break down the barriers to entrepreneurship for women entrepreneurs in underrepresented communities and tap into the creativity and dynamism of more people, with a great emphasis in urban areas.

A specific methodology will focus on how challenges set by society are drawbacks and how to create educational material by using stories of women who turned these challenges into success stories. Emphasis will be given to unconventional entrepreneurship due to its independence from conventional methods of planning, launching, and developing a new venture.

Project results

The project will produce the first-ever Guidebook on entrepreneurship inspired by women entrepreneurs in underrepresented communities that will be delivered in 4 Podcast episodes, as well as a Serious Game which will work as informative and educational material for everyone who wants to engage in unconventional entrepreneurship. Finally, the project will conclude this sequence of OERs with an e-Learning Module that includes Mini DocuSeries on Intersectionality in Entrepreneurship aimed at YWs.
