Enterprise Assessment Tool for Entrepreneurs (E8) – Supporting the entrepreneurial journey

Micro and small businesses are considered as vital engines for growth and job creation and play a crucial role in reaching the objectives of the economic development strategies of numerous countries. As part of the ongoing development of our eco-system for entrepreneurs TFEP has developed an Enterprise Assessment Tool for Entrepreneurs (E8) that enables budding and existing entrepreneurs around the world to test their competencies and determine their “entrepreneurial skill level deficit”, and evaluate any further training they may require. Entrepreneurs also have access to a continually evolving database of training course providers that offer a range of courses (including classroom and e-learning) that will help meet any “competency deficits” identified.
“ .. This is a unique initiative that will support entrepreneurs on their “entrepreneurial journey” to ensure they have the right skills for success and growth ..“ says Dr Paul Quantock, Chairman of The Foundation for Entrepreneurial Participation This self-assessment tool is an important element in the development of entrepreneurial education as it will determine the existing skill level of budding and existing entrepreneurs – which will assist policy makers and training institutions to further develop appropriate courses to meet the “skill deficits” identified by individuals.
