Have you thought about entering the start-up world, launch your business or scaling the one you have ¿Do you know you can study to become a successful entrepreneur?

The future is right up ahead, and these days it’s more about people creating their own businesses than it is about studying for five years to look for a job. Here is where The Academy of Entrepreneurs (AE) comes, and they will take you on the most empowering entrepreneurial journey for just one year!

According to Brian Rashid from Forbes, it is estimated that 50% of the workforce will be freelancers and Business Owners by 2020. The old economy makes you believe that you should get one job, work hard for the next 40 years, and then retire to enjoy your life -a little bit older-. In the new economy, full of enthusiastic entrepreneurs, the more skills you develop, the more opportunities will come to you.

What is an entrepreneur?

An entrepreneur is one who builds, organises, runs and assumes all the risk and reward of a given business venture, idea, good or service. Entrepreneurs are reshaping the economy and society! Aren’t you anxious about being one of us?
