The main result has generated a European online tool which makes future young entrepreneurs think and reflect to reduce the chances of risk in creating a new business, successful analyzes of the points that should be contemplated and the most common errors that can occur in day to day management of a hospitality or catering business. Its main characteristics are:

  • The access to the formative session is carried out through internet;
  • The game is available in the languages of the consortium apart from English.
  • The kind of business has to be selected, apart from the “avatar” inside the game, the business name, its aspect and logo.
  • During the training session, situations and possible answers are going to be set out; each of the possible answers has associated a positive or negative punctuation related to the degree of correct answers to solve a situation.
  • The target group can be formative influences, work consultants, students, unemployed people, or any person interested in undertaking a new business in the hotel industry and catering sector.

The online game is available on English, Spanish, Bulgarian, Italian, Turkish, French and German.
