The Entrepreneurship Department of Backslash works on projects and activities related to these topics:
- Youth Entrepreneurship
- Career Orientation
- Active youth participation
During these years, we developed methodologies to promote entrepreneurship among youth and in collectives at risk of exclusion. Our collaboration with public authorities ensures the reach of our projects and the implementation of the materials created.
To promote the economic growth of the Region, we have cooperation agreements with the University of Valencia in order to mentor their students through internships in the organization. Furthermore, Backslash is an accredited hosting organization for the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs’ EU Programme, where we help new entrepreneurs plan and grow their businesses through mentoring.
As entrepreneurship is not only economic growth, we also promote the active participation of youth as a process of empowerment, expression and inclusion in the society.
The department has also a lot of experience in the use of IT tools applied to entrepreneurship, creating online learning courses (VOCCESS learning course) and coordinating the creation of mobile applications (VOCCESS Career Orientation App).
The department has participated in projects under the EU Programmes Erasmus+ and Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs:
