Supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry for Munich and Upper Bavaria, and working in partnership with the Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), this project aims at strengthening entrepreneurship education in Georgian Vocational Education and Training (VET) institutions. In order to do so, the study considers European best practices in teaching entrepreneurship and analyzes the current situation of entrepreneurship education in Georgian VET colleges and universities. Based on the analysis, the project suggests ways in which Georgian VET institutions can improve entrepreneurship education, identify talented and interested future entrepreneurs, and create an environment where the students will be able to test their skills and knowledge.

This policy document was created through the project “Raising support and enhancing understanding of the Europeanization process in Georgia: information and communication campaign on EU-Georgia Association Agreement, including DCFTA” funded by the Romanian government. The document provides a summary of findings from a study implemented by the ISET Policy Institute in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) and Policy and Management Consulting Group (PMCG) at the request of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development. As part of this study, we conducted a survey of relevant stakeholders including major businesses and business associations, government agencies, commercial banks, and donor and international organizations. It also incorporates the main results from a study of investment opportunities from non-EU countries and potential sectors of investment, which we conducted together with the German Economic Team Georgia. Both studies have been conducted in February-April 2016.
