It was evident that studies using a variety of approaches were conducted to examine the link between entrepreneurial education and entrepreneurial activities. The general findings were that there is a positive link between entrepreneurial education and venture creation. A huge interest seems to have come from United Kingdom and other European and African countries.

Dr. Christian Kessel• 3rd+Coach & Consultant – Successful Business Development for Pro
Are you aware of your firm’s partnership criteria?
Do you get all the support and training to fulfil the requirements for promotion to the partnership?
Of course your own vision for your career and the steps you need to take are important but to be aware of your firm’s expectations or even requirements for progress and promotion is equally important.
But will you be able to fulfil all these criteria?
This may very much depend on the training you get, the support you find among partners and the firm’s overall culture of growth, development and promotion.
So how do you answer the two initial questions above?
One of the key requirements for partnership is, of course, a convincing business case.
If you do not have a strong book of business this is quite likely the case because you have not been sufficiently trained in effective and efficient business development.
So, here are a few key questions for you:
• How far have you got with your business case?
• Do you know how to develop a business case?
• Does your firm provide training on business development?
• Does your team have a culture of business development?
• Do you have a role model of a successful business developer in your environment?
• Do you get enough leeway or even encouragement from your partner to learn and practice your own business development ?
If you answer these questions honestly you will get a pretty good idea of the state of your own business development training and whether your team or your firm is good at it and provides the framework and support that you need and deserve.
Therefore, consider your options and manage your career. Be creative! If necessary, think out of the box which actions or next steps in your training would best serve your career and define goals accordingly.
Consider the options that will let you make progress with your career goals! Be intentional and choose the options that will allow you to realise your full potential.
