School, a solution for female entrepreneurship

Female entrepreneurship in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe is in a difficult condition. Romania is no exception. At least that's what the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) looks like. Female entrepreneurship seems to be a minority in relation to the whole phenomenon.

It is worth mentioning that at the level of 2016, the average national share of women in Romania who held the shareholder or partner in a business was 36%, according to the Trade Registry. If we take into account that the female population is 51% of the entire population of Romania and that 46% of Europe's labor force is represented by women, then we can say that there is potential for this trend to grow.

If in countries such as Austria and Spain women's entrepreneurship is a tradition or is advocated by legislation such as Sweden, Belgium, and the UK, or develops as social entrepreneurship in Germany, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Ireland, female entrepreneurship is correlated with the evolution of the woman's image in society. That is why it is appropriate and necessary for Romania to develop a national strategy for entrepreneurial education focused on women and young people, based on the successful business model of female entrepreneurship in Europe.

At the highest level, the Global Economic Forum's Global Education Initiatives report 2009 highlights the importance of entrepreneurial education and training for attitudes and skills modeling. Moreover, in a world characterized by volatility, unpredictability, complexity, and ambiguity, the need for continuous education and training has increased.

Women's entrepreneurial education directs them towards an entrepreneurial mindset, with the skills and knowledge they need to set up a business and lead a business, giving them the power to become independent and to live their lives courageously. In fact, an entrepreneurial education program encourages women's business initiative for the simple reason that you can not choose such a career if you have not even heard about starting a business and managing it.

A school proposing an active learning model by which successful women in business to devote, in turn, time to women who tattooed entry into entrepreneurship would increase women's confidence in their potential and generate results.
The entrepreneurial impulse of women in Romania is strongly influenced by successful models. Successful entrepreneurial examples represent an incentive for women's decision to become an entrepreneur, as is shown by research conducted in Romania by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Business Research (CEBR).

It is obvious that the school can be the inter-regional platform for education and training of female entrepreneurs, but also the place where women who have a business and want to contribute can be involved in the growth of future entrepreneurship.

Establishing a learning model whose success is measured by the number of established SMEs that continue their activity after the first year would create the premises for its replication in as many geographic areas as possible in Romania.
